Z Microsystems to Supply Naval Surface Warfare Center With Displays

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Z Microsystems, a locally based provider of computing systems, announced they were chosen by the Naval Surface Warfare Center to supply the company’s Intelligent Display Series for use in the Small Tactical Unmanned Aerial System program onboard amphibious ships.

The company said their Intelligent Display Series are flat panel displays that offer real-time enhanced video capabilities to improve surveillance on critical missions.

The LCD display panels feature an image enhancement algorithm that can bring out detail in images that are degraded by poor visibility or atmospheric interference, according to the company website.

“The Naval Surface Warfare Center selected Z Microsystems’ displays after seeing how well they enhanced situational awareness and decision making with no added latency by clarifying images in fog, dust, sand, battlefield smoke and haze — typical when operating in a littoral or combat environment,” Bob Kopas, vice president of Military Programs at Z Microsystems, said in a statement.

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.
