Altron supports an independent R&D program focused on imaging technology. It began with the development of a software product we call “iSo”. ISo was prototyped after winning a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) award to support imaging and navigation on submarines but can be applied to many fields. Our expertise includes secure integration into C5ISR systems and building interfaces with specilized COTS hardware. The benefits of adopting iSo technology include increased situational awareness and a change from passive to active surveillance. This includes detection, identification, visualization, tracking, and alert integration. iSo’s job is to keep you informed of the who, what, when, and where so you can make real-time strategic decisions.
iSo is a light weight next-gen ISR appliance developed by Altron. It detects, isolates, visualizes, and tracks any stationary or moving object found in a video stream. iSo was prototyped under the Navy’s Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) program with the goal of automating the process of obtaining a visual local fix on objects used on Submarines. Its easy to install on software or hardware platforms that incorporate video streams (e.g. drones, unmanned vehicles, and navigation systems). We continue to develop the technology to overcome the latest challenges and are incorporating machine learning (ML) and automated image processing enhancements in extreme environmental conditions (e.g. weather). The objective is to continue to add new iSo capabilities that meet our customer’s specific needs in their operating environments.
