Next week, GreenSight will be sending a team of engineers to JIFX 19-3, a tactical field experiment event, to evaluate the utility of our fully automated security solution. Our experiment focuses on how unattended drones flying continuously over an area, can be used to detect and monitor changes in the environment such as disturbed soil, vehicle movement and personnel movement. We'll be leveraging all our drone and machine learning technology to pull it off, gathering valuable feedback from the user community and a rich dataset we can use to hone our analytics and alerts.
We'll be bringing our industry leading flight time Dreamer drones as well as a pair of our unattended charging/docking stations. We'll be flying two completely autonomous drones continuously throughout the week, attempting to come as close to constant flying as possible over a predetermined area. During that time we'll make changes to the environment and be collaborating with other companies at the event who have relevant technologies (like buried sensors or vehicle technology). Our image processing pipeline will be running, ingesting drone data as it is gathered and analyzing it using our machine learning classification systems, generating alerts and notifying of changes in the environment. This technology is relevant for facility security applications, border security and pipeline monitoring among other missions.
JIFX events are organized by the Naval Postgraduate School and most are held at Camp Roberts, CA (near San Louis Obispo). GreenSight employees have attended many of these events in the past and found them incredibly valuable to refine product and technology capabilities based on feedback from the community and operating it in a relevant "austere" environment. We'll post more information during the week about our experiment! Follow us on Twitter to stay up to date.
