Redkite Airborne Sensor Comes to SOFIC on Heels of Successful Demonstration

Lightweight wide-area motion imagery system also has new enhanced
user interface

FAIRFAX, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/ISR?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#ISRlt;/agt;–Logos
Technologies
will be exhibiting an updated version of its
lightweight RedKite
wide-area motion imagery (WAMI) system at the Special
Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC)
, held on May 20–23, in
Tampa, Fla.


Mounted on a variety of manned and unmanned aerial platforms (including
Group 3 UAS), RedKite can image and record an entire city-sized area at
once. In addition, the sensor provides users on the ground up to 10
different video “chip-outs” of real time or forensic imagery pulled from
anywhere within its vast field of view.

The WAMI system’s upgraded software will make the viewer windows easier
to use and faster in getting high-value intelligence to the operators on
the ground.

“RedKite now has a more intuitive user interface for faster access to
the imagery being collected,” says Doug Rombough, VP of Business
Development. “The operators can quickly call up multiple streaming
windows—it’s just a matter of punching a few simplified functions into
their console.”

Besides the software upgrade, RedKite has recently undergone a
successful demonstration at the Advanced Naval Technology Exercise
(ANTX). The WAMI system showed how tactical commanders can detect and
follow multiple targets simultaneously, enabling effective and
persistent force protection, route recon, and operational overwatch.

RedKite comes in two versions:

1) A platform-agnostic pod for planes, helicopters, and Group 3 UAS, and
2)
The RedKite-I, which rides inside the payload bay of the Insitu
Integrator tactical UAS.

Despite employing a 50-plus megapixel camera, a high-performance edge
processor, and storage capacity for eight hours of geo-tagged data, both
RedKite configurations weigh fewer than 35 pounds. This makes RedKite
the lightest WAMI system on the market today.

And to push the technological edge even further, Logos Technologies is
developing an even lighter version of RedKite that will be integrated
into Group 2 UAS.
