DVD 2022 - September 21 - 22, 2022
DVD is a well-established two day event held at UTAC Millbrook jointly sponsored by Defence Equipment & Support (Land Equipment) organisation and Army Headquarters – the MOD teams responsible for equipping and supporting the UK’s Armed Forces for current and future operations.
Thermoteknix is be among industry leading manufacturers of thermal imagers and night vision systems there to showcase the latest advancements in infrared technology specially designed for military applications.
Taking center stage at the event will be Thermoteknix' Augmented Reality soldier system.
Augmented Reality Tactical Interface Module (ARTIM) delivers heads-up situational awareness to the equipped user during outdoor on-the-move operations.
ARTIM mounts to the back of the helmet to track where the user is located and where they are looking, receiving/publishing networked PLI (Position Location Information) data, and rendering an augmented reality overlay to the user.
Data is displayed by the Thermoteknix ClipIR XD – a thermal imaging clip-on device mounting on an NVG, providing not only augmented reality data but also thermal imaging fusion. The system provides heads-up navigation and tracking of friendlies, using GPS and digital terrain elevation data (DTED) to deliver accurate visualisation of geo-spatial information.
