Zenith Aerospace is developing an Electro-optical sensor with significant reduced weight and power consumption. The sensor is originally designed for medium and high altitude solar powered UAV, and can be mounted/integrated on other smaller unmanned airframeoperated by Air Force. Thanks to the recent progress in the private sector, the sensor with can meet the spatial resolution requirement for most missions and yet cover a relative large area at the same time. The sensor payload is designed to includes on-board GPU-enhanced processing power with modern neural algorithms to pre-process raw data and detect, track and identify objects of interest.Electro-optical sensor,onboard processing,Analysis,UAV,ISR,Dual-application,SWaP
