General Dynamics Mediaware Creates Technical Partnership With Sentient To Enhance Situational Awareness From Airborne Surveillance

Stocks in this article: GD

FAIRFAX, Va., June 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  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 program, 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, analyzing 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 analyzing 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. 

This product collaboration with Sentient's automated detection and D-VEX's intelligent video technology enables customers to extract significant value from the large volumes of full motion video captured from sensors deployed in the field.

"We understand the importance of leveraging technologies that are designed for operations where ease-of-use and low system overhead are vital, saving our customers valuable time and money," said Simon Olsen, director business development, strategy and partnerships for Sentient. "Kestrel's state-of-the-art automated detection combined with Mediaware's family of next-generation video-exploitation technologies enables our customers to extract significant value and actionable intelligence from large volumes of full motion video in real time."
