Spyders Deployed In Afghanistan

Vista Systems provided six Spyder 353 systems to defense contractor SpecOps for the command-and-control center for the U.S. Army's 10th Mountain Division in Afghanistan. SpecOps, which builds tactical control centers, configured the Spyders to feed a 16x5-foot screen that acts as a mega-wall displaying satellite feeds, maps and other key visuals to the division's Joint Operations Center hub.

"The military is interested in lightweight, rugged, highly-deployable systems that hold up under duress and are usable year after year," said Gil Sylvia, applications engineer with SpecOps. "They don't want to have to install something that affects the infrastructure of their location; they do not want to put up permanent screens. Our systems are self-enclosed and can be packed and boxed for redeployment.

"Instead of creating the usual cubed videowall where information is lost between the cubes, Spyder enabled us to create a seamless large screen with multiple windowing which can be used with different sources simultaneously and instantaneously," he continued. "Spyder also allows us to do two- or three-projector edgeblends."
