Conquering Degraded Visual Environments in Military Aircraft
New technology, such as Degraded Visual Environment (DVE) systems, are using radar and IR camera technology to see through low visibility environments (such as smoke, sand, snow and fog) and overlay images onto existing cockpit displays. Learn more about these emerging systems and the role IoT plays in connecting various machines to conquer degraded visual environments.
