Kongsberg Geospatial Announces New Tactical UAS Sensor Data Management Solution

By Eric Van Rees - 15th December 2020 - 08:33

Kongsberg Geospatial, creators of the TerraLens geospatial map-engine Software Development Kit (SDK), announced the release of the Modular ISR Data Analysis and Storage (MIDAS) solution.

Kongsberg Geospatial MIDAS is a Processing, Exploitation and Dissemination (PED) Solution for rapid intelligence analysis of data from Tactical Drones. MIDAS was developed to provide a rapid capability for the exploitation and further distribution of drone sensor data.

Kongsberg Geospatial’s MIDAS addresses the “lack of standards” problem that the vast majority of Tactical UAVs encounter - no standards-compliant PED capability for their organic sensor data. MIDAS provides a fully standards-compliant system that allows intelligence analysts to exploit sensor data in near real-time, from where the drone is being operated - without having to wait for post mission analysis from headquarters.

Kongsberg MIDAS is derived from leading-edge technologies delivered for the NATO Alliance Ground Surveillance (AGS) project which required the storage and retrieval of vast amounts of intelligence data for Intelligence Analysts. MIDAS has packaged these strategic capabilities into a tactical and portable form factor that enables those same strategic PED capabilities to be deployed and given to the front-line warfighter to increase his/her situational awareness.
