General Dynamics Mediaware Honored for Outstanding Teamwork and Excellence in Project Management

Recognized for successful collaboration with the Australian Defence Material Organization on integration of video capture and exploitation systems into unmanned aerial system for operations in Afghanistan

CANBERRA, Australia - General Dynamics Mediaware received recognition at this year's Australian Defence Magazine industry awards, taking home the Defence Materiel Organisation (DMO)/Industry Team of the Year Award for Excellence in Collaboration in the Sustainment and Logistic Support category. The award acknowledged General Dynamics Mediaware's efforts in the successful fielding of its D-VEX tactical video exploitation systems to the Australian Army in 2012.


Integrated into the Shadow 200 Tactical Unmanned Aerial System (TUAS) and currently deployed in Afghanistan by the Australian Defence Force, D-VEX enhances the distribution of mission-critical, actionable intelligence among Australian troops and coalition forces by capturing and managing full motion video from airborne surveillance platforms. A versatile and robust video exploitation system within the General Dynamics video exploitation family of products, D-VEX is an ideal off-the-shelf solution for in-theater operations where ease-of-use and low system overhead are vital.

"We are very honored to be recognized for our work with the Defence Materiel Organisation and Australian Army on this project," said Dr. Kevin Moore, chief technology officer of General Dynamics Mediaware. "This was a true collaborative effort. From the implementation and successful integration of D-VEX, to the testing and operational evaluation of the solution, our strong working relationships with the DMO, Defence Science and Technology Organisation and 20th Surveillance and Target Acquisition Regiment helped ensure that the right system was delivered on time and on budget."

With the ability to record and index video with metadata to derive real-time actionable intelligence, D-VEX provides users with detailed forensic analysis through its comprehensive search and mark-up capabilities. D-VEX also supports open defence standards, including the Motion Imagery Standards Profile (MISP) and STANAG 4609.

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
