Image Sensor Enables Lightweight Tracking Systems

Logos Technologies’ lightweight Redkite-I wide-area motion imagery (WAMI) system weighs less than 25 pounds (12 kg). Despite its small size, it can image 12 square kilometers at once, all in real time—detecting and tracking all significant movers within its field of view. The WAMI system also records and archives up to eight hours of georeferenced data on board the aircraft for real-time forensic analysis.


The system images in medium resolution. Should a user need to positively identify a mover, Redkite-I can cue a narrow-field, high-resolution full motion video camera for a closer look. Users can view up to 10 different real-time and recorded imagery feeds pulled from within the system’s expansive field of view and watch those “chip-outs” on their tablets and other mobile devices.
