Technologies to be presented are:
  • A multispectral remote sensing system that uses active illumination to improve performance, reduce signal to noise, and avoid dependance on ambient lighting conditions.
  • A 3-D, stereoscopic vision system that fuses visible, infrared and multispectral images from multiple cameras for maneuvering unmanned or autonomous vehicles.
  • A system to inspect the condition of railroad bridges in static and dynamic conditions using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and Laser Cameras

For questions or more information, please contact Jack James at

UASCI is creating an environment where unmanned aviation startups can thrive, connect with innovative networks, access global capital, discover national technologies and learn from proven tech industry leaders.
