Core Avionics & Industrial Inc. (CoreAVI) announced the new VIM3006 3U VPX Video Conversion Module which will enable low latency video processing and graphics merging for mission-critical applications, according to a March 16 press release. The new hardware was created with HENSOLDT, a German sensor solutions provider.
This video conversion module allows for integrated sensor video and graphics output solutions separate from a specific GPU, according to the release. It follows VITA 41/42/56 standards.
"The VIM3006 Video Conversion Module is an essential building block to enable safety certifiable technology in mission-critical applications,” Dan Joncas, chief sales and marketing officer at CoreAVI, said in a statement. "Hensoldt and CoreAVI’s collaboration to formally certify and deploy this product into modern airborne platforms attests to both companies’ commitments to providing their customers with technology that meets the highest quality and performance standards.”
The mission-critical applications for this type of video conversion include onboard camera and ISR systems for military and civilian sensor systems and drone surveillance systems, a representative from the company told Avionics International.
The companies that could for these applications include Collins, Honeywell, BAE Avionics UK, Thales, and Safra, the representative said.
“We’re excited to collaborate with CoreAVI on this next generation video conversion solution,” Clemens Peter, head avionics equipment and airborne solutions at HENSOLDT, said in a statement. “Our mil/aero customers cannot compromise on performance, and our collaboration with CoreAVI on this hardware solution will offer both the flexibility and capabilities they desire in their modern, rugged systems. The joint development of this graphics capability provides a highly valuable addition to the HENSOLDT mission management portfolio.”
The VIM3006 3U VPX Video Conversion Module has a FPGA-based design and can support certification to RTCA DO-254/EUROCAE ED-80 under A(M)C 20-152A as well as a FPGA and video processing driver with data package to support RTCA DO-178C/EUROCAE ED-12C certification, according to the release.
