MAG Aerospace, Logos Technologies Test Airborne Wide-Area Motion Imagery Sensor

RedKite ProductLogos Technologies and MAG Aerospace have conducted an airborne test on the RedKite wide-area motion imagery sensor in Carthage, North Carolina, to check the sensor’s video streaming functions.

The sensor was aboard a Cessna 206 turboprop aircraft during the test and was able to send a live-streaming video to ground personnel’s Android tablets, Logos said Thursday.

RedKite is a lightweight sensor developed by Logos Technologies that works to support intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions and allow multiple streaming on mobile tables and other devices, the company stated.

Logos added that RedKite is designed to record all activity within a coverage area that is 2.48 miles in diameter for up to eight hours using its 50-plus megapixel camera and minimal electricity consumption.

Joe Fluet, MAG Aerospace CEO, said the companies will work to provide customers with WAMI products for different types of missions.

MAG Aerospace will offer the Cessna aircraft with the integrated RedKite and associated operations and maintenance crew to its clients.
