Facial recognition imaging system

Hood Technology

Hood Technology announces new facial recognition capability utilizing stabilized airborne video imagery in small, tactical unmanned aerial vehicles (small-UAVs).

The company's new Alticam 09 EO+ payload extends EO optical zoom to 160X, and delivers a standard definition horizontal field of view of 0.3 degrees. The imagers are stabilized in HoodTech's proprietary 4-axis gyro-stabilized gimbal design, and weighs approximately 3.5 kg.

Hood Tech's early 800-gm stabilized video turrets created demand for an entirely new class of small UAVs. Image quality delivered at that time would be considered primitive today. A decade later, customer expectations have escalated; NIIRS image-quality metrics are now being applied.
