Research Institution
High quality video sensors are an invaluable tool for the defense community, enabling unprecedented capabilities for command and control applications. These video systems traditionally use advanced image compression algorithms and Gigabit Ethernet for low latency transmission of large volumes of data. However, these are processing intensive tasks, resulting in large, rack mount solutions. There currently is no compact, low power transmitter capable of delivering high quality, low latency imagery. To address this need, Toyon proposes to develop a highly integrated solution comprised of a third party, ASIC for H.264 motion video compression and transmission, and an FPGA to support multiple camera interfaces. The design will be modular allowing the Embedded Miniature Motion Imagery Transmitter (EMMIT) to support a variety of camera interface modules for the greatest flexibility in the smallest possible package. This combination of compact form-factor, low power consumption, high processing capability, plus flexible interfacing will provide maximum utility for the Army.
