Kongsberg Integrated Tactical Systems (KITS) has won a contract from General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS) for the supply of the Commander’s and Driver’s smart displays for the U.S. Army Stryker Engineering Change Proposal (ECP) Program.

This contract includes design, development, fabrication, test and performance of the DSAD and CSAD for the Stryker ECP Program. Serial production of the displays will be conducted at the Kongsberg facility in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.

Stryker is a family of eight-wheel-drive combat vehicles, built for the U.S. Army by GDLS.

"This highly competitive bid for the CSAD and DSAD was a perfect fit for KITS, whose CORTEX Displays meet or exceed the most demanding maritime and combat vehicle requirements. Extremely rugged and waterproof, the high resolution CORTEX displays also feature a high contrast ratio, which not only reduces viewer fatigue but makes them the most sunlight readable displays on the market today," says Mr. Åsmund Groven, President of KITS.

The CORTEX smart displays that will be used for the CSAD and DSAD feature an on-board processor and additional I/O ports for both data and video.
