Jupiter Systems Announces Single Largest Deployment of Display Wall Processors for the U.S. Army
Posted on Tuesday, August 3, 2010

Jupiter’s VizionPlus is Part of a Mobile Command Post Control System That Facilitates Effective Battle Management

HAYWARD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jupiter Systems announced the single largest order of the VizionPlus display wall processors for the U.S. Army Command Center System. The display wall processors are part of a command and control system designed and developed for the Army by Azbell Electronics in Waco, Texas. The system provides multiple command post levels with a common operating picture of critical real-time information such as troop positions and the status of roads, bridges and other information available from multiple combat systems.

Designed for use in mobile command posts housed in tent environments, the system delivers the same information in the same display format to the commanders and staff at brigade- and battalion-level command posts. This capability facilitates collaborative planning, raises situational awareness and is considered essential to effective battle-management decision making. Azbell began development of the system in 2004 and after testing and evaluation, the system went into full production in 2007.

Real-Time Display of Unfolding Battle Space

Azbell Electronics selected Jupiter VizionPlus as the display wall processor for the Command Center System based on the VizionPlus capability to provide a flexible interface that works with most Windows and Sun OS-based applications, which are used extensively by the Army.

“Our VizionPlus display wall processors enable the Army to combine the display of software applications used by most units with video inputs from a range of sources such as UAVs and helmet-mounted cameras,” said Eric Wogsberg, president of Jupiter Systems. “We can integrate video, data, images, maps and more into a real-time display of the unfolding battle space with mission-critical reliability and 24/7 continuous operation.”

Since 2007, Jupiter has sold more than 1,000 VizionPlus units to the U.S. Army. This latest follow-on order represents the single largest deployment of video wall display systems to the Army.

Decades of Experience in Serving Military Operations

Jupiter’s high-performance display wall processors are ruggedized, battle tested and used in military operations around the world on land, sea and in the air. In addition to the U.S. Army, the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Air Force, Central Intelligence Agency, National Security Agency, Pentagon and North Atlantic Treaty Organization use Jupiter systems. Applications include battlefield management, security, surveillance, operational coordination and other innovative solutions for all types of combat vehicles and operations centers.

Azbell Electronics through its Government Services Division has served the military since 1994. It pioneered Mobile Audio Video Display Systems or MVADS® technology for the U.S. Army and its MVADS solutions are used by 40 percent of the Active Duty Divisions in places such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Bahrain and Korea.

Recently, the U.S. Army selected Azbell Electronics as the audio/video engineering, design and manufacturing facility supporting Army-wide video wall needs. In addition to custom electronics, Azbell offers custom power generation and distribution systems, custom environmental cooling and heating systems, and custom designed and equipped tactical operation centers.
