Mission Data Recorder (MDR)

Azimuth's MDR integrates a multi-channel digital video recorder with platform meta-data logging capability to implement a highly capable all-in-one mission data recorder. Based on a MIL-STD-810f certified rugged and sealed computing core, the MDR offers flexibility in video and data capture, storage and operation. The MDR operates stand-alone or is easily integrated into larger platform command and control systems. Built-in Ethernet and CAN interfaces enable metadata capture from navigation, IP cameras, environmental-triggers and engine sensors.

Designed specifically for mobile applications where ruggedness, remote-control, data access and ease-of-integration is paramount, the MDR offers a non-developmental foundation with open-interfaces. Alternately, the MDR can be delivered as a turn-key standalone device requiring the least installation effort. The MDR is engineered and manufactured entirely in the USA by Azimuth. All mechanical, data, and electrical interfaces are fully specified and presented without license or royalties. Additionally, Azimuth offers design and integration assistance if desired.

Diver6 - Diver Tracking System

Stacks Image 97
Diver6 System Screenshot
Stacks Image 101
Diver6 is a revolutionary Diver and Dive Operations mobile support system. This ADVISORY system allows dive masters to monitor and track divers beneath the surface of the water for greater situational awareness.

Diver6 provides up to date information on the divers in the water allowing the dive master to make faster, safer, and more accurate decisions.

Diver data is transmitted via an acoustic modem to a receiving unit on the surface. Data is then transmitted to a monitoring computer that records, calculates, and displays various parameters. This allows a dive master to closely track each diver's status, depth and location.

Diver6 enables a dive master to create a dive plan that assists in the monitoring and management of diving operations. All monitoring aspects of the dive are recorded and can be used for later analysis and audit.

The system is based on input from a broad range of real-world subject matter experts including:
  • US Navy SEALs
  • EOD
  • Coast Guard
  • Salvage Divers
  • public safety and commercial divers
  • Tracking and monitoring divers in water up to 1000 meters
  • Providing Situational Awareness (SA) on divers in the water
  • Logging a diver’s aqua-spatial information for analysis
  • Diver Recall and Assist features
  • 2D and 3D views of divers in the water
  • Customizable diver alarm conditions
  • Standard dive tables provided for reference
  • Intuitive touch screen application for quick dive plan setup, operation, tracking and monitoring

Targetmaster screenshoot


A tool for maritime interdiction. Defined and tested on the water, this navigation aid combines traditional “Maneuvering Board” functions with a highly-capable target-tracker.

Driving directions are presented to the coxswain in a simple, easily understood, heads-up display. Targetmaster® controls are tailored to suit the environment.

Targetmaster® combines open-architecture interfaces, embedded firmware, ruggedized hardware and COTS navigational sensors to provide a flexible, scalable solution. The system can be deployed from stand-alone to fully integrated glass-helm configurations. "Future proofing" through industry-standard interfaces allows access to state-of-the-art COTS sensor technology.

Engaging a target is accomplished in three simple steps:
  • Acquire: with your existing COTS ARPA, AIS targets or manually entered parameters
  • Track: with the integrated tracker that generates realtime navigation solutions
  • Intercept: using operator selected parameters, automatically validated against craft performance and/or current conditions

Features and Benefits
  • NMEA 2000, Mil-STD-810F, IP67
  • improves intercept precision through continuous updates
  • increases mission flexibility by simultaneously tracking multiple targets
  • reduces operator workload and enhances situational awareness by automating target dead-reckoning, track updates and projections
  • accelerates precise, performance-validated intercept calculations
  • increases force agility and responsiveness
  • enhances navigator-to-helmsman communication through simple graphical representation of steering cues and lead/lag of the boat and NVIS compatible HMI
  • minimal training required reduces costs
  • reduces fielding costs by using existing COTS chartplotters and sensors (Furuno, Garmin, etc.)
  • integrated advanced MOB, image-annotation and meta-data logging capabilities enhance mission scope and capability (option)

EDGE V2 Computer

The EDGE V2 is a high performance, small form factor computer that incorporates features from both the industrial and commercial computing markets. With up to 18 cores of processing and eight (8) terabytes (TB) of data storage capacity, the EDGE V2 is capable of acquiring, storing, and analyzing hundreds of hours of real time, high resolution video.

The EDGE V2 provides up to four (4) Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports to supply power to connected IP-based surveillance cameras, eliminating the need for an additional PoE switch or external power adapters for the cameras. The unit can also be attached directly to a host network via a wired (LAN) or wireless (Wi-Fi) Ethernet connection to acquire video from pre existing host surveillance cameras. The EDGE V2 has phone home capabilities over the LAN, Wi Fi, and embedded mobile broadband (Cell) connections to allow for the secure exchange of analytic data from “the edge” to a central monitoring point. This secure channel can also be used for remote management of the EDGE V2.

The EDGE V2 and all accessories are neatly organized into a single, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) carry-on size compliant, rugged transit case to provide adequate protection during field deployments.

The EDGE V2 is stowed and transported in a rugged, waterproof case molded from ultra-high strength polypropylene copolymer resin. The case features a custom cut foam interior designed to fit the computer and accessories. The case also features a molded-in hinge, trigger release latch system, comfortable, snap-down rubber over-molded cushion grip handle, automatic ambient pressure equalization valve (MIL-STD-648C), resistance to UV, solvents, corrosion, fungus, and impact damage (MIL-STD-810F).

Severe Environment Control System (SECS)
Azimuth IBS on a RIHB

Severe Environment Control System (SECS)

Recent advances in computers and sensors have yielded sophisticated electronic systems that provide the operator with newfound capabilities. Navigation, communication, and systems monitoring on board various vehicles are now frequently integrated into a single system. These electronic systems vastly improve the situational awareness and effectiveness of its operator with a proliferation that spans air, land and sea vehicles. However, operation of these systems has been hampered by inadequate controls. Variations of traditional computer interfaces (keyboard, mouse, trackball, bezel buttons, etc.) have all been exploited with moderate effectiveness. Using these devices, originally developed for the office environment, in a vehicle is both difficult and potentially hazardous to the operator.

Azimuth has developed a novel solution for the Man Machine Interface (MMI) problem in mobile applications. The SECS design leverages off a familiar interface mechanism found on many consumer electronics devices. Originally developed for Special Boat Units, SECS is built to handle the rigors of the high speed, open cockpit patrol boat environment.

US Patent No: 7692626 B2


Motion Data Acquisition System (MDAS)

The MDAS is a device that has been developed for Naval Surface Warfare Center (Panama City) to aid in the collection of long term shock and vibration data in high shock and mobility environments. Specifically, it has been developed to automatically capture data aboard off-shore patrol vessels. These high-speed boats are used to transport Naval Special Warfare operators to their missions. However, significant shock and vibration have resulted in both short term injuries and long term disabilities to the occupants. With the aid of MDAS, the first long-term historical database will be built. Data from this database will aid in the development of new equipment and procedures targeted at mitigating shock and hence reducing injury.
