An example of such a build is the Vehicle Integrated Control System (VICS) - an engine and gearbox management system to replace the obsolescent unit installed on the Challenger 2, the Titan and the Trojan Engineering Vehicles.

In addition to VICS we are also developing a digital display for the vehicle's speedometer, a drivers audible warning device and have modified the Power Distribution Box to incorporate the Bowman Radio Interfaces.
