Red Cat Holdings, a military technology company that integrates robotic hardware and software to provide critical situational awareness and actionable intelligence to on-the-ground warfighters and battlefield commanders, announced an important new partnership.

Opening day of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada, brought the announcement that Teal Drones, a Red Cat subsidiary, has partnered with leading Canadian optical products manufacturer Immervision, whose latest navigation camera module is used for surveillance and unmanned systems. Immervision will provide Teal’s flagship drone with exceptional low-light capabilities – capabilities that Immervision demonstrated at CES.

Teal said that the new model of its Golden Eagle drone, now under development, will be equipped with two Immervision low-light camera modules. In addition to enhancing autonomous navigation at night and in other light-denied situations, such as in fog, beneath bridges and inside buildings, having two cameras provides stereoscopic vision to Teal’s autonomous pilot system. This enables the drone to create a 3D map it can use to navigate and locate itself geographically in low-light situations and in areas where a GPS signal is not available.
