WIDE-AREA MOTION IMAGERY, HYPERSPECTRAL,
AND INSPECTION SENSING FROM ONE COMPACT POD

Our Multi-Modal Sensor Pods (MMSP) house three sensors: wide-area motion imagery, hyperspectral, and inspection sensors. All collected data is processed onboard and in real time. And the three-sensor pod can deploy on manned and unmanned aircraft, including Group 3 UAS. Operators can access a robust multi-sensor capability, including day/night WAMI, without having
to sacrifice other mission payloads or airborne endurance.

FEATURES

  • Platform-flexible pod containing a wide-area motion imagery (WAMI) sensor, wide-area hyperspectral imaging (HSI), and a high-resolution inspection sensor (IS)
  • Auto-cueing (tasking) of Inspection Sensor via WAMI alerts and HSI detections
  • Up to 10 unique WAMI image streams to users on the ground
  • WAMI tracks, user-defined watchboxes, and alerts over full scene
  • Real-time HSI anomaly/signature detections
  • HSI-derived images for HSI detected items of interest
  • High-resolution images for WAMI and HSI auto-cued items/locations of interest
  • Multiplexed motion video streams for multiple user-defined locations
  • Imagery transmission to onboard systems, control centers, and mobile devices
  • Onboard data processing and storage, with archive configured for > 4 hrs, expandable to 8 hrs

DEFENSE. LAW ENFORCEMENT. BORDER SECURITY.

By combining wide-area motion imagery, wide-area hyperspectral, and high-resolution inspection sensors into one system, operators can access multi-layered correlated information, in real time, without requiring additional mission payloads or adversely impacting airborne endurance. One MMSP system significantly increases an operation’s capability and enhances mission success.
