Register for the event


Naval Rotary Wing Aviation is on the cusp of significant transformational change over the next ten years with recent validation of maritime Future Vertical Lift (FVL) and ongoing “Helo Conops 2.0” analysis. As such, for this year’s event, Naval Helicopter Association (NHA) has chosen the theme of “Force of the Future,” which encompasses current manned and unmanned rotary wing and tilt rotor as well as future vertical lift and personnel requirements that are driving the evolution of change in naval aviation. The NHA symposium brings together all the latest cutting-edge equipment, innovations, services, and technologies for maritime operations.

Sentient Vision at NHA, Booth #618

ViDAR (Visual Detection and Ranging), the world’s first optical radar, enables manned and unmanned aircraft to search more than 300x the coverage of existing EO/IR systems during maritime operations. It is a day and night imagery analysis system that examines the feed from a platform’s Electro Optical and Infrared (EO/IR) sensor suite in real time to identify targets that might be impossible for a human operator or radar to spot.

Visit our booth see our latest innovations including the VMS-5 ViDAR Optical Radar day/night pod and talking about the latest developments with ViDAR solutions for maritime domain dominance.

Applications for ViDAR:

    • Maritime Domain Awareness
    • Search and Rescue
    • Anti-Piracy
    • Counter Narcotics
    • Fisheries monitoring
    • Debris detection
    • Maritime Security
