Logos Technologies introduced its new lightweight and compact Redkite wide-area motion imagery (WAMI) sensor system on 3 June.

The Redkite system is located inside an aerodynamic pod that weighs less than 35 pounds, allowing it to be mounted on light planes, tactical unmanned aircraft and helicopters. The sensor itself has an imaging range of 4km, with all image processing performed within the enclosed system.

With the Redkite WAMI sensor, users can open over ten video streaming windows simultaneously in the monitored area. They can also designate certain areas as 'watchboxes'. The sensor system monitors these designated areas for activity and provides an alert on detection.

Redkite also features processing algorithms that index video imagery geographically tagged and collected in real time. The imagery archive can be accessed later by the user for tracing related events. The WAMI sensor system consumes less than 500 watts of power.

John Marion, president, Logos Technologies, said: 'Redkite will be an invaluable tool for law enforcement, firefighters, search and rescue teams and other users. No longer will they have to depend solely on traditional narrow-field video cameras.'
