Aeryon introduces new UAS payloads
Aeryon Labs has introduced an integrated UAS onboard computing platform called Vector, designed for real-time video processing, the company announced on 12 October.
Vector is available as part of Aeryon payloads for vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) UAS, including the Aeryon HDZoom30. The platform utilises advanced video processing algorithms to optimise target identification and acquisition while minimising operator workload.
Initial applications of the platform include target tracker, moving target indicator and digital image stabilisation, with additional capabilities expected to be added in 2017.
Aeryon has also introduced a dual-sensor imaging payload for its Aeryon SkyRanger UAS, called the SR-EO/IR Mk II.
This EO/IR daylight and thermal imaging payload delivers HD video and stable IR imaging for aerial surveillance. It is designed for critical infrastructure inspectors and tactical operators such as first responders, fire services and police departments.
