The Panoramic Vehicular Imaging System (PaVIS) is the system providing a see-through solution for all confined members inside armored vehicles. PaVIS incorporates an around view monitoring system, panoramic cameras and an EO/IR payload. It enlarges the vision for each one of the crew simultaneously, and thereby significantly improves fighting efficiency.

The around view monitoring system (AVM) provides nearby surrounding images and aerial photos to the driver that makes turning, backing and parking safe and easy.

Panoramic cameras provide 360° view to dismounted soldiers with in-situ video, which is interchangeable among visible, IR and fused images. By wearing the head-mounted displays, each dismounted soldier can observe the outside battlefield on the direction they are facing. This enables the soldiers to alert the commander immediately if a danger appears. Moreover, when dismounted, the soldiers are already aware of the outside situation and are therefore better prepared to complete the assigned mission.

PaVIS not only assists the commander in making precise decision by panoramic view reported from dismounted soldiers, but also the image provided by a variable zoom payload for long distance observation. Once an engagement is confirmed, the commander can guide the gunner to the right direction for shooting.
