Paramount and Defensphere Collaborate on Mixed Reality System

Vegvisir Provides AFVs With 360° Situational Awareness

Paramount Land Systems (www.paramountgroup.com) has signed a strategic Letter of Intent with Defensphere OU (https://vegvisit.ee) to collaborate in the development, installation and global marketing of the Vegvisir Mixed Reality Situational Awareness System (XRSAS).

Designed as an entirely original situational awareness system, Vegvisir provides armoured vehicle personnel with ‘through the wall’ 360° visibility of the battlefield. Its mission computer oversees the technology’s innovative videographic systems, its four layers of sensor systems and its algorithms in synthesising camera imaging entirely external to the vehicle. The proprietary mil-spec video headset is used to provide a mixed-reality overview of both activities in the immediate periphery of any land vehicle – but also of objects of interest which may be significantly further away.

In 2022-era austere environments of conflict, today taking place both external to and within any given countrys borders, there is an increasing demand for outstanding levels of situational awareness on the battlefield. It is critical for crewmembers carrying out myriad of assignments such as reconnaissance, border patrol and peacekeeping, the ability to observe, orient, decide and engage in time-sensitive scenarios with greater efficiency and mission survivability than ever before,” stated Deon Grobler, CEO at Paramount Land Systems.

Vegvisir is being developed in line with NATO standards, and is also being integrated within other battlefield platforms, including UGVs, stand-alone sensors, and battlefield management systems. It also has the potential to be used for training activities and simulations for mechanised infantry. “Our mission to ensure that Paramounts land vehicles showcase world-beating technological prowess knows no limitation. Our partnership with Defensphere OU furthers our 27-year legacy and commitment to offering perpetual innovation and highly customized solutions for our partners around the world,” Grobler added.

Ingvar Pärnamäe, CEO of Defensphere OU, stated “Vegvisir and technologies like it offer today critical actionable intelligence to help decision makers on and off the field of combat to have all the information and understanding that they would need to reach sound conclusions, those often executed on-the-fly”. In addition to the Vegvisir product offering, Defensphere OU also provides feasibility studies, upgrades and installation services, together with third-party custom API and open architecture software integration.
