Driver’s Vision Enhancer (DVE) B-kit provides combat and
tactical-wheeled vehicle operators with the capability to conduct
day/night operations or maneuver in severely degraded visual
conditions caused by smoke, fog, dust or other battlefield obscurants.
The DVE provides situational awareness, vehicle
tracking, support elements for the combat force, and enhances
the driver's ability to detect targets, Improvised Explosive
Devices (IED’s) or ambushes located at the roadsides.
The DVE B-kit System is comprised of two Line
Replaceable Units (LRUs): the Sensor Module (SM) with the integral
Uncooled Mini-Microbolometer module and the Display and Control
Module (DCM). The system can be fitted into the vision block
of various combat vehicles or mounted externally on the vehicle
to maximize the viewing area.
