First: Logos Brings Wide-Area Sensor for Integrator UAS, Low-Acoustic Bike to Army Expo

New Redkite delivers powerful imaging with system that fits inside payload bay of small UAS

Logos Technologies will be displaying for the first time at the upcoming Association of the United States Army (AUSA) expo in Washington, D.C., a Redkite wide-area sensor configured for the Insitu Integrator tactical unmanned aircraft.

“For this AUSA, we will exhibit two versions of our ultra-lightweight Redkite WAMI,” said John Marion, president of Logos Technologies, “our standard podded model, plus a new integrated version — both of which have been recently tested on Group 3 unmanned aircraft systems.”

Like larger wide-area motion imagery (WAMI) systems, Redkite can cover a city-sized area (12 square kilometers) at once—detecting, tracking and recording all significant movers within the scene and transmitting multiple imagery streams to users on the ground in real time. It also stores up to eight hours of geo-tagged mission data for real time and forensic analysis.

This year, Logos Technologies conducted test flights of a Redkite fitted for the payload bay of the Insitu Integrator / RQ-21 Blackjack. This sensor version demonstrated its ability to capture and stabilize WAMI and stream it to multiple handheld devices.

Logos Technologies also successfully tested these capabilities with a platform-agnostic Redkite pod mounted to the wing of a TigerShark, a Group 3 unmanned aircraft system developed by Navmar Applied Sciences Corporation (NASC), in a flight in July.

“U.S. and international customers to AUSA will get to see how powerful WAMI sensors are now moving on to smaller platforms and what that means for the tactical commander,” Marion said.
