Innovative Sensor for UAV's Increases Situational Awareness on the Battlefield

BAE Systems has introduced one of the smallest multispectral sensors available for unmanned systems — an innovation that will help improve soldier situational awareness by reducing the time required to identify targets. On today’s battlefield, soldiers need the ability to process, understand, and engage with their environment at any time, under any condition or circumstance. The company’s Digitally Fused Sensor System (DFSS) offers a combination of multiple capabilities in a single sensor so that soldiers can intuitively assess a scene using an unmanned vehicle in time-critical situations.

“With sensor fusion, soldiers don’t need to switch back and forth between the daytime camera and the infrared camera, then try to compare those images in their heads as they do with existing systems,” said Eric Hansen, business development manager for Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance Solutions at BAE Systems. “Our new technology allows warfighters to quickly determine whether people or vehicles are hiding and if they present a threat.”
