360° Unattended Ground Sensor (UGS)
Day/night, low power, real-time embedded system that continuously monitors the scene, detects intrusions, and distinguishes between humans and animals.
OptoKnowledge is working to provide soldiers improved capability to reliably detect and classify personnel day/night using low power passive sensors at ranges greater than existing technology approaches. As part of this effort, OptoKnowledge has developed a sensor system consisting of a thermal camera staring at a 360 degree field of view reflective mirror. The resulting imagery is processed using algorithms that recognize the presence of dismounted humans.
