GPEC 2018: Networked Operational Capability

Mission-ready solution from AD2V showcased at the stand of griffity defense


GPEC 2018 opened its doors today with plenty of opportunities, both for industry and trade visitors. The three-day event is said to represent a premier platform this year for decision-making circles in security authorities when it comes to continuing enhancements of existing equipment and services.

One aspect was discussed on the floor during the very first hours of the event: griffity defense GmbH and a selection of innovators during a four hour presentation showcased a bundle of new and proven technologies able to provide Special Operations Forces with a networked operational capability. This is requirement is not new; but, missions undertaken in a complex urban environment pose extraordinary risks that must be identified in time.

“Digital revolution in absolute darkness”, as outlined by the Austrian company AD2V Industries GmbH, is found in a completely new mission package consisting of a night vision goggle that, due to its modular design, can be fitted with various sensors, performing in the most complex mission scenarios under the most adverse environmental conditions. This allows for ‘corner shots.’

AD2V’s President and Member of the Board, Andreas U Durner, told MONS that the solution is already in play, with many users in 56 countries on all continents using the equipment. “Most of them are outside Europe,” he insisted.

The firm developed a fully digital solution that generates crystal-clear b/w imagery, allowing more details of the scene than traditional (analogue) technology. The benefit is rapid detection and identification of evolving threats. Durner insisted that the AD2V NVG is the first that can be adapted to every helmet, and thanks to digital technology it can be used day and night, sharing mission-critical imagery, text information, and position (GPS) data with other units and levels of commands.
