Assistant Product Manager Maj. Curtis Brooker and Common Remotely Operated Weapons Station, or CROWS, Engineer Matthew Moeller demonstrate the second screen option developed at Picatinny Arsenal, N.J. Army Acquisition professionals from Product Manager Crew Served Weapons helped develop and field a cabling system to route the video signal from the CROWS gunner's fire control unit in the back of a tactical vehicle to the Driver's Vision Enhancer screen situated in the front of a vehicle. This provides other team members the same situational awareness as the gunner. CROWS provides added sensor capability to the DVE system to include 360 degree traverse and elevated point of view. Units can request the second screen cabling system via an operational needs statement.
