SAN DIEGO – May 19, 2010 — Z Microsystems, a leading provider of mission-ready computing systems, today announced the first shipment of its ground control displays on a multi-million dollar contract to upgrade Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) ground stations. Acting as a sub-contractor to a major supplier of UAS, Z Microsystems displays will be used by ground control station operators and analysts in the US military to monitor live video feeds.

“Our ground control displays are built to help the military and aerospace UAS community focus on ‘seeing better’ and ‘seeing more’ through the application of real time image processing,” said Jack Wade, CEO of Z Microsystems. “This contract validates that our technology is meeting the need for higher fidelity visualization in UAS surveillance.”

Z Microsystem’s display panels are available with 17, 21 and 24-inch active display areas. The displays offer multiple PiP (Picture-in-Picture) windows and offer numerous mounting options. The ground control displays are designed to work in unison with the Any Image Anywhere (AIA) image enhancement system, which executes image enhancement algorithms in real time on live, full-motion video.
