14 Sep 05. A breakthrough in health and usage monitoring technology was launched by Oxley at DSEi. This new miniature health & usage system, known as Oxley M-HUMS will be demonstrated on the Oxley Group stand number 1581. Developed in collaboration with General Dynamics UK Ltd, the innovative M-HUMS technology captures hours run and other utilisation data by non invasively sensing load currents in equipment power lines. It integrates current sensors in a vehicle power distribution unit (PDU) which ensures vehicle reliability is not affected even if the M HUMS becomes damaged or is removed. The usage data is captured and stored in non-volatile EEPROM for interrogation by Oxley e-tagTM contact memory readers such as those being deployed by the British Army for asset control. The M-HUMS can also connect to the main vehicle Health and Usage Monitoring System (HUMS) to provide a comprehensive platform and LRU (Line Replacement Unit) data capture system. It can also easily integrate to software asset management systems such as BLIS and JAMES to assist reliability centred maintenance planning and provide shared data for contractor logistics support industrial arrangements. The system is easy to install and simply requires the addition of a small unit and one extra cable to be installed into a vehicle. It is smaller, lighter and lower in cost than other solutions and is therefore ideal for retrofit as well as new build vehicles.
14 Sep 05. Fujitsu Services introduced Auriga, a PC that combines admin and battlespace IT requirements, at DSEI. Auriga, a rugged, small footprint PC,
will meet the physical and electrical security standards required when
processing classified data and can be specified with a lockable, removable,
encrypted hard drive that can travel securely with others. Auriga will be
showcased alongside Altair, a similar small-footprint PC that stands up to
30g shock that Fujitsu Services developed specifically for The Royal Navy.
13 Sep 05. Thales UK today unveiled THOR, the latest in a long line of highly successful weapon systems produced by its air systems facility in Belfast. THOR is a new vehicle mounted Multi Mission System and is the only weapon system to combine surface to air and surface-to-surface capabilities within one lightweight launcher. Defence and security forces across the globe are faced with an increasing variety of conventional and asymmetric threats. Following consultation with many military users Thales UK has developed THOR as a multi-role force protection system, which can be deployed rapidly and operated with ease in warfare or against terrorist threats. The THOR system comprises a four-missile turret with an integral stabilised sighting system, high performance TV camera and thermal camera to provide a 24-hour capability. These latest generation sensors have been designed to detect small signature targets and they are integrated with an Automatic Target Tracker to ensure a fully automated target engagement and tracking process. Of modular design, with a weight of less than 500kg this, launcher can be integrated onto a wide range of vehicles, whether wheeled or tracked. At DSEi THOR can be seen integrated with a Pinzgauer 6×6 vehicle [stand 855].
