AI powered ViDAR (Visual Detection and Ranging) makes maritime search and surveillance 300 times more effective than EO/IR sensors alone. ViDAR is the world’s first and leading airborne persistent wide-area maritime visual search system. It is designed to find objects that traditional search methods often miss. Designed to operate on a range of rotary or fixed wing crewed and uncrewed aircraft. ViDAR provides a day and night imagery analysis system with 180 degree field of view.
