Feature Rich Imaging Software

  • Object Tracking - The TASE payload will autonomously track selected objects such as people, cars, trucks or other objects moving in the scene based on image match within a user adjustable target box.
  • Geo-Stamp - allows the operator to designate areas of interest by simply pressing a key or touching the screen. The incident is tagged on a map, a still image is taken and the location is logged in a separate incident folder. This feature is invaluable when a still-image of an object/feature is needed for later reference. The captured still-image can then be overlaid on Google Earth.
  • PathTrack - Easily identify and follow roads, powerlines, pipelines. Autonomously points the payload toward pre-loaded GPS coordinates along a path. Path-Track auto-detects aircraft heading and picks up the path for tracking. Reduces training costs and improves productivitiy of operations.
  • Video On Map-  Live video geo-located and terrain warped over moving map. This feature greatly enhances the operators ability to identify the exact location of the object or feature the camera image is looking at.
  • Real Time Image Mosaic -  The increased information provided by mosaicing displayed in real-time on the payload interface provides a real advantage to the payload operator, showing path history and a wider situational awareness FOV when zooming in on an object. 
  • Electronic Stabilization (E-Stab) PC-based image stabilization enhances mechanical gyro stabilization
  • Scene Steering (Includes E-Stab) PC-based scene tracking centers image and corrects for vehicle airspeed
