Curtiss-Wright's Video Management System (VMS) offers complete surveillance solutions for rotary and fixed wing aircraft. VMS includes rugged displays, video distribution and recording equipment that are scalable, highly interoperable and easy to install and reconfigure. VMS has been successfully fielded in a wide range of demanding applications, including SAR and border patrol operations. In the UK, London's Metropolitan Police Air Support Unit relies on VMS. In Australia, airborne surveillance units deploy VMS on both fixed and rotary wing aircraft.
A fully integrated system, VMS uses touch-screen technology to enable pilots and observers to independently select, view and record images – with no signal loss – from multiple camera and sensors. In addition, video transmission downlink via microwave is available.
