As modern land vehicles increasingly depend on the proliferation of cameras mounted on the vehicle to provide 360 degree situational awareness, the need for low cost, size, weight, and power optimized, rugged displays is on the rise. Similar to the latest cars on the market, ground vehicles benefit from having an operator display that shows them whats behind them while reversing. Displays for such applications dont require the latest in display technology or processing, but do need to maintain reliability in the harsh environmental conditions of the battlefield.

The Rugged Video Display Unit (RVDU) is a SWaP optimized and rugged display designed for non-mission critical applications such as vehicle reversing and equipment monitoring. The 7 inch, 800 x 480 pixel, widescreen display has two CVBS (composite video) inputs and two digital inputs. Ambient light sensors on the RVDU automatically change the screen brightness to the optimal setting for visibility in any light conditions, while the LED backlight provides a clear, crisp picture. A CAN bus control interface is provided for seamless software upgrades and for interfacing with Curtiss-Wright video management solutions such as those in the Rugged Video Gateway (RVG) product line. Environmentally qualified to military standards, the RVDU is a fully sealed unit and is IP65 rated which eliminates the risk of sand or water ingress over the life of the display. With buttons on the front that enable the operator to control screen brightness, select the video input, and illuminate the keys for night mode, the RVDU provides a low cost solution for ground vehicle video applications with one or two cameras.
