The Curtiss-Wright Video Management System (VMS) offers a complete, rugged integrated video solution for airborne and ground platforms. A VMS includes rugged displays, video distribution and recording equipment that is scalable, highly interoperable and easy to install and reconfigure.

The VMS fully integrates all mission video equipment, allowing the operator to display any video channel at any time on any display, have complete control over connected video recorders including live playback and changing the channel being recorded, touchscreen control over connected moving maps or PC equipment and also the ability to change channels going to any downlink/uplink equipment.

The Video Management System has been successfully fielded in a wide range of demanding applications, including SAR and border patrol operations. In the UK, London’s Metropolitan Police Air Support Unit relies on the VMS. In Australia, airborne surveillance units deploy the VMS on both fixed and rotary wing aircraft.
