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.<p> </p>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.<p> </p>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.<p> </p>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.
