FAIRFAX, Va. —September 30, 2015— Logos Technologies will be exhibiting its Simera and Redkite ultralight wide-area motion imagery (WAMI) sensors at the Association of the United States Army’s annual expo, taking place October 12-14 in Washington, D.C.
Simera and Redkite are next-generation airborne sensors that can monitor, in near real time, an entire city-sized area at once, while at the same time recording everything for later analysis. They derive from the battle-proven Kestrel system mounted on large aerostats at U.S. bases in Afghanistan.
“Simera and Redkite represent the newest generation of WAMI sensor,” says John Marion, president of Logos Technologies. “They are light, powerful and can go on a wide range of platforms.”
For the military user, Simera supports such missions as base defense, route reconnaissance and overwatch. In addition, it can be employed to safeguard borders, ports and logistics hubs from terrorist attack as well as help guide humanitarian relief efforts.
“The Simera sensor and its tactical aerostat can be transported to site in just two small trailers,” Marion says. “They can then be unpackaged and ready for operation in a couple of hours.”
Redkite shares many of the same capabilities as Simera, but is housed in an aerodynamic pod weighing less than 45 pounds. As such, Redkite can be mounted on helicopters, light planes and tactical, Shadow-class unmanned aircraft.
Redkite requires less than 500 watts to operate, making it the smallest and most power-efficient sensor of kind in the world. Its cost is similar to a traditional stabilized hi-res video camera.
In addition to wide-area sensors, Logos Technologies will be demonstrating, for a select group of U.S. customers at AUSA, a solution that provides unified data discovery and display for WAMI, full motion video, and other sensor inputs, enabling a fully integrated multi-intelligence airborne capability.
“Matching the lightweight sensors with the advanced analytics significantly increases the speed of analysis and reduces the processing, exploitation and dissemination footprint, offering our customers effective ISR solutions,” Marion says.
Logos’ ISR solutions will be on display in booth 8153 at this year’s AUSA Annual Meeting, being held in the Washington, DC Convention Center from October 12-14, 2015.
