Black Diamond Launches Next Gen Tactical Mission Controller with Double the Processing Speed and 4x Faster 3D Graphics
PHOENIX --(Business Wire)--
Diamond Advanced Technology, based in Tempe, Ariz., introduces its
next generation Modular
Tactical System (MTS (News - Alert)), a wearable multi-mission unit that controls
mission-critical peripherals on a central display. The new unit has
double the processing speed and is four times faster displaying 3D
operational graphics, while also eliminating battery and equipment
redundancies to lighten load-out.

The MTS is primarily used by U.S. and International special operation
forces for a variety of missions including precision targeting, C4IS,
SA, EOD and UAS/UGV control. The MTS has been fielded in support of
Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) since 2010 as a TRL-9 solution.
Tactical Mission Controller (TMC (News - Alert)), which is the heart of the MTS kit
and houses a computer, power management system and embedded radio
interface electronics, now employs a dual-core Intel (News - Alert) processor. The TMC
Dual-Core provides a more than two times faster processor and more than
four times faster 3D graphics engine-all for the same size and weight
while maintaining backward compatibility with fielded MTS accessories
and cables. The dual-core processor also provides the ability for
simultaneous dual-video output and support for new radios, as well as
other feature improvements. The MOLLE-compatible TMC is worn on the back
of the tactical vest or can be configured in a pack or carry-bag.
"The TMC Dual-Core improvements are being offered to help future-proof
the MTS kit for our customers," said Norman Lange, director of product
development at Black Diamond.
The TMC Dual-Core unit is available now; for more information visit www.bdatech.com.
