Gen­eral Dy­nam­ics and Sen­tient join hands for au­to­matic tar­get­de­tec­tion plug-in


Gen­eral Dy­nam­ics Me­di­aware and Sen­tient Vi­sion Sys­tems Pty Ltd. have cre­ated a tech­ni­cal part­ner­ship which com­bines Sen­tient’s Kestrel Land and Mar­itime tar­get-de­tec­tion soft­ware with Gen­eral Dy­nam­ics Me­di­aware’s D-VEX next-gen­er­a­tion tac­ti­cal video-ex­ploita­tion sys­tem. This plug-in fea­ture pro­vides sur­veil­lance sys­tem op­er­a­tors and an­a­lysts with im­proved real-time sit­u­a­tional aware­ness and strength­ens post-mis­sion foren­sic anal­y­sis and in­tel­li­gence re­port­ing.

“While work­ing to­gether on the Aus­tralian De­fence Force’s Shadow 200 tac­ti­cal un­manned aerial sys­tems pro­gramme, it was clear to us that Sen­tient’s Kestrel soft­ware in­te­grates eas­ily and strength­ens the end-to-end video ex­ploita­tion ca­pa­bil­i­ties of our D-VEX sys­tem,” said Dr. Kevin Moore, Chief Tech­nol­ogy Of­fi­cer at Gen­eral Dy­nam­ics Me­di­aware. “Com­bin­ing th­ese two tech­nolo­gies cre­ates a pow­er­ful tool for de­tect­ing, analysing and re­port­ing mov­ing tar­gets in both the mar­itime search and res­cue and bat­tle­field en­vi­ron­ments.”

D-VEX is a video ex­ploita­tion sys­tem that cap­tures and man­ages full-mo­tion video, pro­vid­ing op­er­a­tors with in­tu­itive tools for en­hanc­ing, stream­lin­ing and analysing live and recorded video. When cou­pled with Sen­tient’s Kestrel real-time au­to­matic de­tec­tion soft­ware, which al­lows users to iden­tify small, hard-to-find mov­ing tar­gets in elec­tro-op­ti­cal and in­frared aerial live video streams, mis­sion op­er­a­tors and an­a­lysts can quickly trans­form raw video data into ac­tion­able in­tel­li­gence. Lever­ag­ing the com­pa­nies’ ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence in ad­vanced full-mo­tion video, the com­bined sys­tems sim­plify the post-mis­sion foren­sic anal­y­sis of video.
