2d3 Sensing Announces Contract Awarded by Dutch MOD to Upgrade Motion Imagery Exploitation Capability on Army ScanEagle UAS

Share Article

2d3 Ltd (the UK business unit of 2d3 Sensing), an agile commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technology provider specialising in the improvement, processing, exploitation, and dissemination of motion imagery and metadata, announced that it won a contract to upgrade the Dutch Army’s ScanEagle UAS motion imagery exploitation capability. The project consists of delivering updated FMV (full motion video) PED (processing, exploitation, and dissemination) software and integrating it with the existing capability delivered by the ScanEagle manufacturer, Insitu.

This demonstrates the benefit of powerful commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) capabilities that can be deployed quickly and efficiently to enhance tactical operational capability.

This project, contracted by The Netherlands MOD Defence Material Organisation’s Air Systems Procurement Department, will result in the delivery of two identical exploitation suites for use with the Insitu ScanEagle systems in service with the Dutch Army. Each integrated suite will run 2d3 Sensing’s Catalina and TacitView software, allowing analysts to create a metadata-based catalogue of the imagery archive and to rapidly exploit live feeds of video data that enable enhanced and faster support to decision makers.

The Catalina motion imagery catalogue and archive capability will improve the quantity of data the unit can retain and significantly reduce the time to retrieve data from archive for further analysis. The modular TacitView motion imagery exploitation solution has been tailored to the specific workflow needs of each analyst in the ground segment, ensuring efficiency in their intelligence production task, but also reducing overall system costs and complexity.

This procurement is to support an urgent operational requirement to enhance a capability deployed by The Netherlands MOD to support UN operations in Mali. 2d3 Sensing was tasked to deliver the capability within extremely tight timescales; from contract award to system integration to staff training, the entire process was completed within 30 days. This demonstrates the benefit of powerful commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) capabilities that can be deployed quickly and efficiently to enhance tactical operational capability.
