A Technology Readiness Level 9 system, ARIES-25 passively conducts long-standoff, real-time, full motion video and data collection. ARIES-25 provides precise pointing for C2ISR; customs and border patrol; land and maritime search and rescue; and special operation missions. ARIES-25 is qualified to various military standards.
The system features six simultaneous cameras and advanced image processing that can auto-detect and auto-track numerous targets simultaneously with closed-loop tracking. The turret-based ARIES-25 system is adaptable to various platform configurations, and its robust metadata-embedded imagery offers targeting and tracking precision.
