Asio Technologies is integrating its NavGuard optical navigation systems into the drone platforms of a US customer to enable accurate, autonomous GNSS-free navigation in areas where the GNSS signal is spoofed, jammed, or unavailable.
Using cutting-edge machine vision technology, AI, advanced optics, and sensor fusion, NavGuard can be installed on unmanned aerial platforms to enable safe and sustainable 24/7 drone missions under complete GNSS blackout.
Designed for a variety of applications, such as defense, homeland security, and infrastructure security, Asio’s solution can aid tactical drone missions where payload capacity and flight time are limited, and continuous operation under all conditions is critical.
“We are honored to announce that another customer is choosing NavGuard as the product of choice for their platforms,” said David Harel, Asio Technologies CEO. “Based on real-time geo-referencing of optical video streams to an on-board geo infrastructure, the NavGuard systems generate low latency accurate positioning throughout the entire mission, enabling operational freedom anytime and anywhere.”
ASIO Technologies NavGuard family of solutions, which will be presented at the UVID drone tech exhibition in Israel, includes:
- NOCTA EX: Fully integrated day/night optical navigation module for large drones and medium fixed-wing platforms
- NOCTA Mini: Fully integrated day/night small optical navigation module for medium to large drones
- NG Core: Lightweight, compact day-only optical navigation module for small to medium drones
