DRS’ Enhanced Situational Awareness system uses the DVE Wide as the heart of the system. With its own built in video processing, the DVE Wide allows three external cameras to plug into the system and provide a stitched video output so the operator can view all the cameras on a single display.

The ESA system is comprised of one DVE Wide, two DVE UltraLites and one DVE UltraWide.

DRS can also customize a system to your application.
