The US Office of Naval Research (ONR) has successfully flight tested an autonomous multisensor motion-tracking and interrogation system.

ONR programme manager, Dr Michael Duncan, said that “the demonstration was a complete success.

“Not only did the network sensing demonstration achieve simultaneous real-time tracking, sensor cross cueing and inspection of multiple vehicle-sized objects, but we also showed an ability to follow smaller human-sized objects under specialised conditions,” he added.

The multisensor motion-tracking and interrogation system will identify mobile objects and provides high-resolution images of those objects with no human input.
