CHANTILLY, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hexagon US Federal announces today that it has been selected by U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command Technical Center (USASMDC-TC) for a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) to explore space-based satellite systems and advanced sensor technology to enhance U.S. Army systems and missions.
Through the CRADA, Hexagon US Federal and USASMDC-TC will establish a joint team to research and prototype airborne and space system paths to collect 3D high resolution Single Photon LiDAR (SPL) imagery in support of Army mission requirements. The resulting technology will offer first-of-its-kind, worldwide target acquisition-quality resolution, points, and area collection with near-real-time on-board processing.
“Hexagon US Federal is pleased to partner with the U.S. Army to advance our state-of-the-art Single Photon LiDAR sensors in support of their missions,” said Tammer Olibah, CEO and President of Hexagon US Federal. “Through this partnership, we will gain valuable insights that will result in improved technologies for enabling safer and more effective mission execution.”
Airborne and Space-Based LiDAR and ground systems are necessary to provide a real time, high resolution, precise geo-locational accuracy, 3D target image collection and processing supporting long-range fires systems. During this CRADA effort, the team will demonstrate rapid fielding, increased access, and responsiveness to tactical space needs.
