Research Institution

Through this effort, we will adapt the SAFR facial recognition platform for deployment on an autonomous sUAS for special ops, ISR, and other expeditionary use-cases. This will require integrating the SAFR software with the hardware and software stack of the sUAS, including its onboard compute, communications systems, and remote controller software to enable operation in DIL communications settings, support actionable insight for remote human operators, and open the opportunity for real-time autonomous response by the robot.
