Asio Technologies has announced today the successful completion of several demonstrations of its NavGuard optical navigation system to strategic customers in the United States, which gives drone operators precise navigation capabilities in areas where the GNSS signal is unavailable or jammed.
The demonstrations involved drones performing aerial navigation activities as well as automatic door-to-door delivery of packages over urban and rural areas without relying on GNSS signals.
“NavGuard is a real-time optical navigation system that enables precise, autonomous GNSS-free navigation for tactical UAS platforms, making it an ideal solution for tactical drone missions where payload capacity and flight time are limited, and continuous operation under all conditions is critical,” said the company in a press release. “Designed with advanced machine vision technology, AI, and sensor fusion, NavGuard ensures safe and sustainable 24/7 drone missions in complete GNSS blackout. It is a versatile solution for various applications, including defense, commercial, homeland security, and infrastructure security.”
