Indago and Hydra do real-time 3D Modeling


During the Robotic Technology Exhibition in Dubai six weeks ago, Lockheed Martin demonstrated the Indago quadrotor UAS equipped with an EO/IR payload. It was steered from a portable controller with software that allowed the operator “to focus on high-level mission execution rather than flight details” according to LM. Throughout the flight, the UAS fed video and data via an LM-developed fusion tool named Hydra, into a 3D earth model to produce a growing orthomosiac map of the area it was flying over.
