OTTAWA, April 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- General Dynamics Canada introduces the new ultra-rugged SD8000 family of smart display products with the quad-core 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor, bringing latest in commercial computing to military vehicles. These new smart displays meet the computing-intense requirements of the battlefield while conserving size, weight and power inside military vehicles.
"Quad-core processing effectively doubles the computing capabilities of previous dual-core smart displays," said David Ibbetson, general manager, General Dynamics Canada. "Increased demand for warfighters to have rapid and direct access to information and sophisticated battle management applications requires highly integrated battlefield computing solutions. Now, with our next generation Smart Displays, we are bringing this capability to our customers the same day it is available to commercial industry."
"The growing use of sensors and high definition video, along with heavy processing requirements for critical battlefield management and on-site embedded training / mission rehearsal applications, amplifies demands on vehicle computing systems," explains Matt Langman, director of marketing, Intelligent Systems Group at Intel. "By harnessing the increased energy efficiency and enhanced 3D graphics and video capability native to the 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor family, General Dynamics can provide critical computing capabilities while maintaining processing speed."
The next generation displays are naturally convection-cooled to meet rigorous military standards. Additional key features include touch screen, multiple video and audio input channels, streaming and snapshot video capture, multiple vehicle-bus interfaces, wireless communications, VoIP capabilities, embedded Ground-Based GPS Receiver Application Module (GB-GRAM), multiple I/O ports and a solid state hard drive. General Dynamics has also integrated Intel® Virtualization Technology to enable the use of Multiple Independent Levels of Security/Safety (MILS), a high assurance security architecture for controlled information. Developed for ground combat vehicles in harsh military environments, these enhanced product features provide a flexible platform that adapts to the changing dynamics of missions while supporting interoperability and future technology enhancements.
