Enabling smarter sensors onboard UAV payloads

Payloads onboard Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are enabling out more and more of the U.S. military's Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions. The ISR sensors in the payloads provide critical real-time imagery and intelligence, but often weak radio links force a compromise and distribution of that data. As a result UAV payload designers are packing more and more processing capability behind the sensor, enabling more data filtering at that level so only the most important information gets to the commanders in the field, cutting down on those communication bottlenecks. This e-cast of industry experts will cover how embedded hardware and software designers are tackling this challenge.
