The NSW Defence Innovation Network (DIN) has released a case study video of DroneShield's DroneOptID technology, an AI-based optical/thermal detection system that detects and classifies UAS and their payloads in real-time.
The software utilises recent developments in computer vision, image processing and deep learning, combined with the proprietary-developed AI under this collaboration with University of Technology Sydney, to improve C-UAS technology.
Applications include military, law enforcement, airports, critical infrastructure and others.
The team has recently won two categories at the 2021 NSW iAwards for this partnership, showcasing "how defence industry-university partnerships can deliver research translation into real customer deployments, in short timeframes".
According to DroneShield, the DroneOptID product has already been successfully trialled and deployed with end customers globally.
