Missile VideoDecoding/Encoding Unit comprises two parts. The first part is the Video Encoding Unit (VEU) inside the missile. This unit compresses the digital video data received from the onboard imaging source of the missile by using the JPEG 2000 algorithm, and transmits it to the VideoDecoding Unit (VDU) of the Launch System or the Launcher via the RS485 UART data bus through a data link or the central link. The second part is the VDU on the launcher or launch system. This unit processes the data sent by the VEU and provides a video image.
