NODAR to develop 3D vision for American unmanned vehicles

NODAR technology company was awarded a $ 1.67 million contract to develop 3D vision systems for all of the US military’s all-terrain autonomous land vehicles.

By using multiple cameras with overlapping views, the 3D vision system can detect off-road obstacles in environments with little or no light, smoke, dust, rain, or other harsh conditions.

The system identifies terrain and objects 1,000 meters (0.6 miles) away, allowing the vehicle to identify, engage, or avoid hidden threats long before entering the area.

The technology can also produce dense and highly precise 3D point clouds that provide details essential for navigating difficult terrain.

In addition to high-resolution cameras, the 3D system uses computer vision software to maintain camera alignment and deliver real-time, high-density, high-frame rate, 360-degree 3D data.

“Developing game-changing technologies”

Co-founder and CEO of NODAR Jiang Leaf highlighted his company’s ability to produce long-range, high-resolution 3D sensing technologies that withstand adverse environmental conditions.

For the head of the US military Matt Willis, the partnership between NODAR and the American army will bring advantageous solutions to the technological needs of the service.

In addition to 3D sensing technology, the service is looking to integrate a microwave weapon on Stryker combat vehicles for enhanced anti-drone swarm capabilities.

The US military also awarded a contract to a team from General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems (GA-EMS) and Boeing to develop an air defense system based on a 300 kilowatt laser.
