Redkite flies on Integrator UAS
The Redkite sensor can be carried in the internal payload bay of the UAS, providing wide-area motion imagery (WAMI) to multiple users on the ground who can select real-time and/or historical video feeds within the coverage area and view them on desktop screens, tablets and other mobile devices.
The lightweight sensor (under 30lbs) has a coverage area of over 12 square km, and is designed to detect, track and record significant moving targets within the scene. It also stores up to eight hours of this geo-tagged mission data on onboard solid state drives.
John Marion, president of Logos Technologies, said: 'In the past, we've mounted podded versions of our lightweight WAMI systems to rotary- and fixed-wing aircraft. Now, thanks to further reductions in weight, we can easily fit a Redkite inside a tactical unmanned platform, as demonstrated with our recent flights on the Insitu Integrator.'
Pete Kunz, chief technology officer for Insitu, added: 'Insitu is pleased to collaborate with Logos to provide our customers with the critical information they need. Integrator with Redkite will enable an even broader set of missions and keep our warfighters out of harm's way.'
