Bringing transformative radar sensing and advanced navigation to new domains
Aloft Sensing is bringing high-performance radar sensing and advanced navigation to autonomous platforms in the stratosphere and other domains, leveraging innovative processing techniques to transform the way Earth observation, tactical ISR, and high-precision PNT data is collected.
Aloft provides high-quality synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery and sensitive change indication measurements from compact software defined radar payloads that are well-suited to autonomous uninhabited vehicles such as sUAS and HALE aircraft.
Aloft's approach even extends to underwater synthetic aperture sonar (SAS) systems to enable undersea navigation while simultaneously mapping the sea floor.
A key innovation behind Aloft's approach is a self-contained navigation technique that achieves micron-level localization and picosecond timing to maintain coherence across a baseline or series of baselines.
Aloft's techniques uniquely enable coherent distributed sensing from multiple platforms for exponential performance gains and reconfigurable and resilient operations.
Additional benefits include operation in GPS/IMU-challenged conditions, new approaches for accurate autonomous navigation, and enhanced sensing products.
