Delta Receives Northrop Grumman MQ-5B Hunter Video Encoder Award

Horsham, PA – Delta Digital Video, a business unit of Delta Information Systems, Inc., is pleased to announce that we have received an award to deliver H.264/MPEG-2 Video Encoders in support of Northrop Grumman’s MQ-5 Hunter Tactical Common Data Link (TCDL) RESET program. The contract will be completed in May, 2012. The TCDL RESET program will enlist Delta’s Model 6021R, a rugged video encoder designed to meet the requirements of the unmanned community.

“We’re delighted to support Northrop Grumman’s TCDL RESET program” said Gary Thom, President of Delta Information Systems. “Delta is committed to providing outstanding video compression capability for challenging rugged airborne applications for Northrop, the US Army, and the entire unmanned systems community.”

The MQ-5B Hunter provides warfighters with state-of-the-art intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, communications relay, and signal intelligence. Currently, the MQ-5B Hunter is deployed supporting contingency operations in Southwest Asia.

The Model 6021R was the first H.264 encoder to be certified by the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) to be compliant with the Motion Imagery Standards Profile (MISP). The MISP is used to assure the interoperability, integrity, and quality of motion imagery, associated metadata, and other related systems in the DoD/IC/NSG.
