Logos Technologies Sensor Systems

With their ability to deploy on Class 3 Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), Logos miniaturized wide-area motion imagery (WAMI) systems offer the tactical commander access to a sensor modality that, not too long ago, would have been reserved for higher echelons. This increased access to critical ISR data makes the warfighter faster and more efficient.

UAS Sensor Systems

RedKite Pod

Lightweight, Wide-Area Motion Imagery for Manned and Unmanned Aircraft

Redkite is a compact wide-area motion imagery (WAMI) system that’s housed in a platform-agnostic pod weighing less than 35 lbs. Despite its size, the electro-optical Redkite pod can, like larger WAMI sensors, monitor a city-sized area in near real-time, detecting and tracking multiple targets while also recording events for later analysis. Redkite’s on-board high-performance edge processor converts gigabytes of data into geo-tagged imagery in real time. With eight hours of mission data storage, operators on the ground can download both live and recorded imagery for real-time forensic analysis. READ MORE

RedKite-I

Lightweight, Wide-Area Motion Imagery for the Insitu IntegratorTM Tactical UAS

Redkite-I is a compact wide-area motion imagery (WAMI) sensor that’s housed in the payload bay of the Insitu Integrator, a Group 3 unmanned aircraft system (UAS). Like larger WAMI systems, Redkite-I can monitor a city-sized area in near real-time, detecting and tracking multiple targets while also recording events for later analysis. Redkite-I employs our multi-modal edge processor (MMEP), a high-performance processor that converts gigabytes of data into geo-tagged imagery—eight hours of which can be stored locally, while the sensor is still airborne. Operators on the ground can then download both live and recorded electro-optical imagery from the WAMI system. READ MORE

BlackKite Pod

Infrared, Wide-Area Motion Imagery for Manned and Unmanned Aircraft

BlackKite delivers infrared (IR), wide-area motion imagery (WAMI) in a compact, lightweight, platform-agnostic pod weighing less than 38 lbs. Easily mounted on fixed wing, rotary wing, and UAS aircraft, the BlackKite system monitors a city-sized area all at once, day and night, automatically detecting and tracking all significant movers. BlackKite's onboard high-performance edge processor easily ingests and converts gigabytes of data for easy storage, or real time dissemination of of live and recorded imagery to users on the ground.

BlackKite-I

Lightweight, Day/Night Wide-Area Motion Imagery Sensor for the Insitu IntegratorTM Tactical UAS

BlackKite-I is an infrared (IR) wide-area motion imagery (WAMI) sensor configured specifically for the payload bay of the Insitu Integrator, a Group 3 unmanned aircraft system (UAS). Like larger day/night WAMI systems, BlackKite-I monitors a city-sized area in near real-time, detecting and tracking all significant movers in the scene, while also recording events for later analysis. BlackKite-I employs our multi-modal edge processor (MMEP), a high-performance processor that converts gigabytes of data into geo-tagged imagery—eight hours of which can be stored locally, while the sensor is still airborne. Operators on the ground access live and recorded IR imagery from the WAMI system, in real time. READ MORE

Multi-Modal Sensor Pod

Platform-Flexible, High Performance Multi-Sensor System in a 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 unmanned UAS. Operators can access a robust multi-sensor capability, including day/night WAMI, without having to sacrifice other mission payloads or airborne endurance. READ MORE

UAS-Mounted WAMI Capabilities

Logos Technologies customers can choose between the electro-optical RedKite, the infrared BlackKite, or the three-sensor Multi-Modal Sensor Pod (MMSP) for their airborne ISR needs. The RedKite and BlackKite systems weigh less than 35 pounds and come in two formats: a modular, podded version that can be mounted to the external hardpoints of various aircraft (unmanned aircraft systems, planes and helicopters), and an even lighter, integrated version that fits inside the payload bay of a tactical UAS.

The MMSP system weighs under 100 pounds and can be mounted to the external hardpoints of various aircraft.

Key features shared by the RedKite, BlackKite, and MMSP systems include:

  • Coverage of an area up to twelve square kilometers
  • Real-time access to live and recorded imagery
  • Resolution optimized to track vehicles and detect moving dismounts
  • High-performance, real-time onboard multi-modal edge processor (MMEP)
  • Onboard storage of up to eight hours of mission data
  • Multiple unique streaming video windows to operators on the ground
  • Imagery that can be transmitted to handheld devices
  • User-defined “watchboxes” to provided sensor operators automated alerts

Training, Repair and Operation of UAS-Mounted WAMI

Logos Technologies provides operator training on its UAS-mounted solutions, as well as on-site repairs and system maintenance, at its headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia. In addition, Logos Technologies can provide its own trained personnel to deliver in-field operational support.
