Logos Technologies presented its airborne, platform-flexible Multi-Modal Sensor Pod (MMSP) for the first time at AUSA. The Pod is 160 cm long, 40 cm wide and 48 cm high. It weighs around 45 kg. The MMSP consists of a wide-area motion imagery (WAMI) system, a wide-area hyperspectral imager, a high-resolution spotter, and an onboard embedded processor for real-time processing and storage. The three sensors work together with autonomous cross tasking, to deliver comprehensive, multi-layered information in real-time.

As part of the MMSP, the WAMI system can image a city-sized area in medium resolution. This suits for the detection and tracking of almost every mover within the vast scene, while the narrow-field high-resolution spotter can be cued to monitor 10-plus locations automatically, providing identification-quality imagery.

“This is invaluable and a great force multiplier to the warfighter”, said Doug Rombough, Vicepresident of Business Development for Logos Technologies, “because it greatly reduces the number of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance sorties needed over a target area, saving time, saving platforms and saving equipment.”
