The Alticam SAR Pod is a combination of the market-leading iMSAR NanoSAR and the Alticam AC-9 EOIR2 payload. This system is designed to be mounted on manned or unmanned aircraft and provides real time capability to point the Hood Tech day or night cameras to a point of interest that has been identified by the iMSAR NanoSAR. The combination of being able to pass SAR and EO/IR imagery from a single pod to decision makers on the ground in real time can provide compelling information to the end user.
The Alticam SAR Pod provides a unique lightweight UAV-based search and rescue capability in maritime applications. Designed for a medium-sized UAS, and adapted to manned aircraft, the SAR Pod uses the NanoSAR functions for wide area search with rapid geolocation processing and tight integration with EO/IR pointing to rapidly identify detection events generated by the SAR. Line-of-sight or SATCOM links relay compressed imagery back to operators for rescue deployment.
The Alticam Pod has been designed such that it can carry any of the Hood Tech payloads as well as hosting a number of other interesting payloads for manned or unmanned use.
