Galvion is excited to be introducing its new Nerv Centr® Hub Application. Developed to support their recently launched Man-Worn Power and Data capabilities, the Hub Application offers users the ability to monitor real-time power usage to more effectively plan for future missions. Galvin’s new Hub Application, along with the full suite of Nerv Centr® power and data provision and management solutions, and next-generation Batlskin® head systems.
Missions depend on charged equipment more than ever before, and the complexity of sustaining soldiers on the battlefield expands and shifts with every new technology. Radios, NVGs, GPS, smartphones, laptops, drones, and other surveillance equipment all demand significant power, and the ability to manage that power efficiently is mission-critical. The new Nerv Centr® Hub Application is designed specifically to make the job of real-time power management for the modern operator much easier.
Simple to use, with an intuitive, easy-to-understand user interface, the application allows the user to monitor and analyze power usage. Some features in Live Power mode include estimated remaining run time based on attached power and devices, low power alert, and voltmeter to enable optimal solar blanket positioning. The Application also allows for after-mission Power Analysis which offers a more detailed understanding of power usage and allows for comparisons to be made across users. Mission data can then be included in the Power Modelling tool, which analyses historical and modeled power usage to predict future mission needs and enable more precise logistic and support planning. This minimizes battery burden and maximizes run times and efficiency. The Nerv Centr® Hub Application will be available as an enhanced feature for Galvin’s 4-port Power & Data Hub (PDH-4) and will be Android and ATAK compatible.
Peter Rafferty, Galvin’s UK President said: “We first demonstrated our new Hub Application to the US market at SOFIC a few weeks ago but exhibiting at Eurosatory allows us to introduce the Hub Application to our customers on this side of the Atlantic. We have been actively growing Galvion’s Software Development team over the past few years to better serve the user. As technology evolves, we must provide value-add capabilities beyond the simple hardware. This Application sits alongside our existing Man-Worn Power & Data product range and will offer real operational advantages to JTACs, communication specialists, and tactical leaders, allowing lighter logistic loads and substantiated, accurate power planning for future missions.”
