Designing an Operator Console involves many stages and a deep understanding of the customer’s requirements. In most cases, every Operator Console is a tailor-made.
First stage in developing a new Console is writing the technical design document. This document combine sall the relevant information for the project. It includes also the necessary guidelines in the MMI (Men Machine Interface) design process which is very critical to the end user.
This document is very important throughout the various stages of the program. Practically, this document will be the reference guide in order to ensure the accuracy of the design and compliance with the specified requirements.
Having all existing requirements for the customer
Ergonomic Physiology concept
Specifications manual or doctrine
Applicable standards for system setting (including a combination of these standards specification).
The results of this work are drafted into a single document which is presented to the customer for approval. Once approved, this document provides the basis guidelines/specifications for all stages of the design steps.
The basic ergonomic requirements represent only one part of the requirements, but probably the most important part. The reason for that is that the operator will spend many working hours on this unit and if it is not designed correctly, it will negatively affect the ability of operators to do their job.
In order to start the full design, we need to gather all other requirements, and prepare the SRR document.
Some of the following stages of the project are listed here under:
Design reviews (PDR, CDR)
First Article – for verifying the solution
Equipment installation and integration
Acceptance testing and approval for manufacture
DEGEL.US specializes in designing the best possible solution for the customer by offering BTP or BTS with a possibility to add Rugged computers if required by the customer.
DEGEL.US has built Consoles for many of the leading integrators in the Israeli military industry; among them are ELTA, ELBIT, RAFAEL and others. The consoles built by DEGEL.US are in use by the IDF in Israel and by other entities worldwide.
DEGEL.US is a strategic DELL partner and provides solutions based on DELL computers and servers to its customers.
Lightweight Thermal Shroud (LTS)
For T-72 and for 105mm Canon
Hitting the target’s “bull’seye” on first shot is a mandatory requirement in today’s modern weapon systems. The major challenge is in long range and large caliber barrels.
Uneven heat on the upper and lower part of the barrel, caused by sun radiation (heat) or cooling by rain may cause the barrel to bend up or down and affect the accuracy of the system.
DEGEL.US’s Lightweight Thermal Shroud (LTS) provides an excellent solution for ensuring maximum system accuracy by isolating the affect of external heating or cooling sources on the barrel. Unlike other heavy and bulky thermal shield solutions, DEGEL.US’s LTS unit is easy to deploy and provides a cost effective best solution service to the military customers.
Shelters & Containers
DEGEL.US provides U.S.based logistics Containers and Operational Shelters.
The logistics Containers are used forvaries application such as bathrooms, showers, housing, offices etc. Operational Shelters are in use by IDF troops invarious operational activities. As part of its services. DEGEL.US helps defining the operational and technological requirements. DEGEL.US work closely with the manufacturerin the U.S. andverify proper application according to customer requirement swhile ensuring compliance with Israeli standards.
