Reactor is Camgian’s edge AI computing platform being developed to drive revolutionary gains in multi-sensor system autonomy and performance. Reactor provides integrated multi-sensing, reasoning, and response analytics applications for the warfighter on the tactical edge. Reactor is built on the significant body of research in the fields of multi-data fusion and decision analytics to drive traditional approaches to sensor data processing toward automated response capabilities. The Reactor platform is “sensor agnostic” and therefore facilitates a plug-and-play distributed environment for a wide variety of sensors and support to tactical assets such as countermeasures, unmanned ground vehicles, unmanned aerial systems, weapons, operators, and analysts.
Peregrine is being developed as the core data-to-decision engine for Counter-UAS operations. Peregrine leverages artificial intelligence (AI) and best of breed sensor technologies to develop systems that robustly counter aerial threats. Peregrine leverages our Reactor edge AI computing platform to develop an intelligent edge computing architecture that supports the ingestion and fusion of heterogenous sensor data and the real-time processing of multi-target UAS detection, identification, tracking, and response information for display on user interfaces (e.g. Android Tactical Assault Kit (ATAK), RaptorX). Peregrine is currently being developed to support three configurations for various levels of operations: Configuration 1- Mobile Vehicle: designed to be self-contained and deploy/operate seamlessly with a variety of vehicle-mounted sensors to present the C-UAS picture; Configuration 2- Operations Center: a robust, standalone version with increased networking and computing resources designed for facility and fixed installation monitoring such as Tactical Operations Centers, Forward Operating Bases, and Embassies; Configuration 3- Mobile-Lite: a ‘lite’ version of the already mobile vehicle configuration that will be able to perform low-level sensor fusion directly on an end-user device (ATAK) to support dismounted operations. The long-term vision for Peregrine is to move to a fully autonomous C-UAS system with the ability to detect, track, and analyze the current C-UAS situation and provide courses of action and responses for the warfighter.
Prowl is a low-power, compact radar system that provides long-endurance, persistent target detection and tracking in harsh operational environments. Designed for special operations, Prowl supports rapid deployment in any configuration. The high update rate and high probability of detection combined with Prowl’s low Size, Weight, and Power (SWAP) make it the perfect “bolt-on” solution to fill existing capability gaps in currently deployed stand-alone or networked end-to-end systems. Prowl also operates as a stand-alone solution, as an Unattended Ground Sensor (UGS) trigger, and can be integrated into existing UGS systems to cue still and/or video camera systems. Prowl’s small, lightweight man-packable form factor and easy set-up enables transportation and deployment in austere locations. Prowl’s low-power consumption enables unattended, long battery life operations of several months. Command and Control (C2) is provided through RaptorX or ATAK user interfaces that support deployment on both laptop and hand-held devices wirelessly connected to the Prowl radar unit.
ProwlCAM is a low-power, smart imaging capability for the Prowl Unattended Ground Sensor (UGS) system. ProwlCAM addresses a critical need for augmenting Prowl radar tracks with visual target confirmation. Designed as a “bolt-on” capability to the Prowl radar, ProwlCAM includes computer vision algorithms that deliver robust, high-resolution target imagery to the end-user C2 device. ProwlCAM co-mounts to the Prowl radar, connecting with just one cable, which simplifies set-up and provides increased geo-registration accuracy as compared to traditional UGS/camera configurations set-up. ProwlCAM supports both day and night operations through its combination of high megapixel visible spectrum (EO) and long-wave infrared (LWIR) cameras that capture images of Prowl radar targets within the camera’s field of view and displays them to the warfighter to enable more informed decisions regarding potential threats and their activities. ProwlCAM supports long field life by operating at very low power- only “waking up” when triggered by the Prowl radar. ProwlCAM integrates advanced object detection algorithms to automatically detect targets within the camera’s fixed field of view, digitally crop the image to the target, and send the image to the C2 device. Future releases will support additional object classification through a new deep learning platform to aid in the recognition of high-value targets, potential threats, and other objects and events of interest.
Using the Prowl radar architecture as a foundation, Camgian has developed and demonstrated a prototype (TRL-6) for an additional radar system called ProwlXR. ProwlXR extended range, a wider field of view, and frequency selectability while maintaining low-power and foliage peak-thru capability. ProwlXR is able to detect human and vehicle targets in an open field to 2,000 meters and offers approximately twice the range in peak-thru foliage capability over the Prowl radar. ProwlXR operates in the S-band allowing for improved penetration of materials as compared to the C-band Prowl radar. ProwlXR utilizes the same internal radio communications and positional sensors as Prowl and supports the same C2 platforms (Raptor / ATAK) for the warfighter.
