Vehicle Systems

Local Situational Awareness (LSAS)

By mounting an array of cameras on the chassis of armoured personnel carriers, tanks or other tracked/wheeled vehicles, an unobstructed view over the near surroundings of the vehicle can be maintained with the hatches closed, providing improved safety for the entire vehicle crew and material.
The CITADEL series of situational awareness cameras can be used in a driver’s vision enhancer (DVE) solution and for obtaining an all round 360° view for the commander and troops. Such a solution, together with complementary sensors, consitutes the first line of a well designed survivability concept.

The CST situational awareness cameras are available in four basic configurations:

Citadel Panoramic camera system (dual camera unit), providing a full 170° Field-of-View   Built-in graphics overlay for distance markers – Ideal for stand-alone use.

Citadel Compact : Single camera unit, factory configured for Field-of View from 47° up to 100° – For use with on-vehicle video processing unit.

Citadel Thermal: Single camera unit with a thermal core and a FOV of either 44, 57.3 or 90°.

Citadel Quattuor: A unit comprising four cameras in one unit, being a thermal and 3x visual cameras where the centre thermal and visual cameras are merged providing an optimized sight for drivers inside an armoured vehicle. The two outer wide angle cameras gives a larger FoV for the driver/operator.View

Citadel Dual Cam: A unit comprising two cameras in one units, being a thermal and daylight camera where the two images are merged into one.

Oher configurations can be provided as custom designs.All CITADEL cameras are designed to deliver high-performance images, even under the harshest shock and vibration conditions of metal track or wheeled vehicles, and in temperatures ranging from -40°C to +70°C.

Driver’s vision enhancement during degraded visual conditions
When the driver and the troops are well protected in a closed and sealed armored vehicle during operations, a vision of the near surroundings is limited. When you add darkness, smoke, sand, dust or fog to the situation, the visual conditions play a huge role in safety and security for the troops. A professional driver’s vision enhancement system ensures a combative fighting unit under any conditions.
