16 May 05. The Titan Corporation, Advanced Products & Design (AP&D) division today announced the release of a new version of VideoScout, an intelligent video management system designed to capture video from unmanned vehicles, and annotate, edit, search and transmit critical video intelligence for mission planning, analysis, and reporting. The new version of VideoScout now enables field-deployed personnel to manage real-time video. Included in the latest release of VideoScout are enhanced Digital Video Recorder (DVR) capabilities to provide users complete control over the viewing and recording of video. Users can rewind and pause live video feeds in real-time, allowing them to control and analyze live video at their own pace. Once analysis is completed, users can quickly fast-forward to “catch up” to the live video feed. VideoScout’s new streaming video capability allows users to automatically transmit captured video to other users, providing more real-time collaboration and communication of intelligence throughout the chain of command.

16 May 05. Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing has announced its plans for a new comprehensive product line-wide architecture called COTS Continuum™. COTS Continuum represents a major Curtiss-Wright R&D investment undertaken with the goal of empowering customers and solution providers to leverage new computing technologies without the cost and risk associated with adopting new software and hardware interfaces. The COTS Continuum architecture will provide the following benefits:For Product Managers, COTS Continuum will increase options for technology insertion by offering next-generation products with drop-in interoperability. For Program Managers, the reuse of validated design blocks across multiple COTS Continuum products will reduce integration risks. For System Engineers, intuitive and consistent interfaces mean easier architecturing of your systems based on COTS Continuum products and compliant partner products. For Software Engineers, consistent API’s between product generations and across product families will permit new levels of application software reuse. For Partners, access to COTS Continuum architecture documents and technical support will ensure interoperability with CWCEC products.
16 May 05. Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing has announced a new PCI Radar Input Card, the Osprey PCI, that simplifies the integration of radar sensor systems by providing a simple-to-use, cost-effective radar input interface compatible with Curtiss Wright’s range of radar processing and display products. The low power, ruggedized Osprey PCI card operates in a wide range of temperature and shock/vibration environments and is designed for applications including networked radar video servers, naval command and control display consoles, radar head monitor systems and airborne radar display consoles. The card can interface to a wide variety of radars with interfaces based on ACP/ARP, serial and parallel. In addition, a wide range of PRF rates, rotation rates, and sampling frequencies are supported without any hardware re-configuration. The new Osprey PCI card can digitize analog radar videos at 50 MHz to 8-bit
