Israeli company OSG has unveiled a touch-screen variant of its ScreeneX vision-through-glass technology at DSEI 2019, Shephard Media reported.
According to OSG’s marketing and sales manager, Oren Yaron, the new solution allows end-user displays, traditionally located on the dashboard or control consoles of vehicles, to be displayed and manipulated on windshields and windows using the company’s ScreeneX LCD digital screen.
Integrated between layers of ballistic-protected glass, digital screens can be used to view and manipulate multiple sources of information, including electro-optical and infrared (EO/IR) video feeds and battle management systems (BMS).
The solution has also been designed to provide vehicle operators with maximized situation awareness while negating any requirement to “stare down” onto end-user devices, Yaron explained.
The report adds that the touch-screen ScreeneX technology can be integrated into a variety of ground vehicles, including mine resistant ambush protected (MRAP) platforms, infantry fighting vehicles (IFV), as well as counter-terrorism and civilian-military vehicles.
Yaron said OSG is in talks with the United States, Germany, and Turkey regarding the integration of the touch-screen technology into various ground vehicles.
Shephard adds that OSG is also developing a solution which would provide operators with a see-through display with overlay of EO/IR or BMS feeds in order to maintain even greater levels in situation awareness.
