GE’s Intelligent Platforms business (Huntsville, AL) has introduced the rugged ADEPT4000 compact high definition (HD) digital video tracker with electronic image processing. It is the first HD digital video tracker with the capability to perform tracking, image stabilization and video compression simultaneously in a package specifically designed to minimize size, weight and power (SWaP) in highly constrained environments such as autonomous unmanned vehicles, man-portable systems and so on. Measuring just 64mm x 54mm - 75mm x 75mm including connectors – weighing only 28 grams and consuming (depending on settings) a mere 4W of power, the ADEPT4000 enables a powerful, sophisticated solution to be deployed that allows for a high degree of flexibility in board location.
