The ADV-301-23H is qualified over an extreme operating temperature range of -51 to -71C. In addition, it was qualified for 2Hrs of immersion at 1 meter depth using protective dust covers.

H-132-6A AGC-Video Amplifier System

The AGC/Video Amplifier has two modes of operation; Automatic Gain Amplification and Video Selectable from a switch. In the AGC mode, the gain of the amplifier is dependent on the received signal amplitude.

Video Selector Amplifier System (VSAS)

The VSAS (Video Selector Amplifier System) was developed to enable users at remote locations to view information from up to six different video sources. The VSM-102 is a dual, 6-1 video multiplexer which accepts NTSC video information from up to six sources. Each of the 6-1 multiplexers can select any of the six video sources independent of each other.

Video Multiplexer V M-102

The VM-102 Video Multiplexer will accept up to five standard NTSC video inputs and then combines horizontal fractional segments of these five video signals into one standard composite video format.

VGA Video Amplifier Splitter

The ADV-301-VGA-2 unit accepts a single VGA signal via a MIL-DTL-38999 connector, buffers the signal, and splits it to two 38999 output connectors. The system is powered by standard 28-Volt DC aircraft power.

High Speed Digital Video Products

High Speed Video Matrix Switcher


The HD-SDI Video Matrix Switcher, VMS-712, is Eon’s all new high-speed digital video product. The VMS-712 provides video switching and distribution support for your high-definition digital video interfaces. The VMS-712 is fully qualified to EMI MIL-STD-461F and Environmental MIL-STD-810F. The VMS-712 accepts up to seven high speed digital input video streams and routes them to any of twelve outputs with the ability to re-clock each of the video signals as they are sent through. The unit is controlled by a computer via RS 232 software interface through a DB 9 connector located on the top face of the VMS-712. Video signals, including HD-SDI and Standard Definition video signals can be multiplexed and re-clocked directly within the unit. The VMS-712 has a built-in Test Pattern Generator.

Kappa Camera and VMS-712

Eon has partnered with Kappa optronics GmbH to provide customers a comprehensive HD-SDI solution using the VMS-712 and a Tauri HD-SDI Kappa optronics camera. Kappa Tauri HD-SDI camera has a 2.5 Mega pixel, 1920X1080 active HD-SDI, and is controlled by a computer via a RS 232 or RS 485 software interface. Kappa cameras have been used on many military platforms, including aircraft, helicopters and UAVs. These cameras have also been used by all terrain vehicles and for in-flight refueling on the A330 MRTT.

Video Monitors

Eon provides a complete customer solution by coupling Eon video amplifiers, video matrix switchers, and electronic blanking units with standard and HD-SDI video monitors. The monitors come in 10" , 15" and 22" sizes and can be designed for a variety of applications, including helicopter and aircraft, UAV ground control stations, ground vehicles and naval surface ships. The video monitors can be customized to fit with any Eon product. Eon’s ability to provide video monitors enables a comprehensive and efficient design process that takes into account customer preferences and space availability in a specific application.

Digital Video Recorder

Eon has designed an HD-SDI airborne recorder as part of the all new high-speed digital video product system. Just like the VMS-712, the Recorder is an all-new product. As with all Eon products, the recorder can be configured in accord with customer design and space requirements. The installation of the recorder can be integrated with the conversion of a customer’s analog system to an all new digital architecture.


Electronic Blanking Units

Pre-Trigger Converter and Blanker Unit


Eon designed and manufactured the BCU-105 Pre-Trigger Converter and Blanker Unit (PCAB) for the United States Navy. The BCU-105 is being installed on Navy surface ships beginning in 2015 and will control the new Aegis weapons system upgrade.

The BCU-105 accepts up to 31 analog pre-trigger signals from own-ship pulsed radar systems, and performs two parallel functions: pre-trigger conversion and generation of blanking pulses. The pre-trigger conversion function transforms the input pre-trigger signal on each input channel to Low Voltage Differential Signal (LVDS) format, and outputs the LVDS format pre-trigger signals with minimal latency. The blanker function creates blanking signals from each pre-trigger input. The BCU-105 has a front-panel display and controls to allow each blanking channel to be adjusted individually.

Blanking Combiner Unit Model BCU-101

Blanking Combiner Unit BCU-101 is designed to combine blanking pulses from five inputs into a serial composite stream made available on two separate buffered outputs. Each of the five inputs is equipped with delay and threshold level adjustments accessible from the front panel. The output level port, accessible from the front panel, controls the amplitude of the two outputs simultaneously.

Blanking Combiner Unit Model BCU-102

Blanking Control Unit BCU-102 is designed to accept trigger pulses from various emitters and produce blanking pulses with adjustable pulse width and delay. These pulses are used to disable sensitive electronic equipment during the strong transmission periods produced by equipment such as radar and RF transmitters.

BCU-103Blanking Combiner Unit Model BCU-103
Blanking Combiner Unit BCU-103 provides the capability for the reception, coordination and distribution of blanking pulses between various avionic equipment. The BCU-103 conditions and mixes input blanking pulses in a predetermined pattern for retransmission of blanking pulses to associated receivers. Some of the input to output relationships are reconfigurable at the supplier’s factory.
