Technology to locate targets fully automatically without human supervision objects in satellite imagery.
FARSIGHTS technology finds targets in a very efficient and reliable way. Its patent pending technology takes advantage of an existing technology in coatings, widely used in roofing, and with growing application in the maritime, aerospace and automotive markets.
Coating systems, with pigmentation that can improve the visibility of these objects, are needed. Unlike the exterior paint system, where designers want to achieve a specific color space, lane markings and pedestrian safety vests have greater color flexibility. For these items, maximizing automated visibility by sensors could be more important than cosmetic color.
