  • Officials of Naval Air Systems Command at Patuxent River Naval Air Station, Md., have awarded Logos a $6.7 million contract to develop, deliver, and perform proof-of-concept flight tests on a WAMI sensor called Cardcounter for the Navy and Marine Corps RQ-21A Blackjack UAV
  • Cardcounter will be derived from Logos BlackKite sensor
  • BlackKite, on which Cardcounter is to be based, weighs less than 28 pounds, yet is powerful enough to image an area of more than about five square miles to detect and track all land vehicles in real time
  • The Cardcounter WAMI sensor will capitalize on BlackKite’s high-performance, multi-modal edge processor, which can store six or more hours of mission data
  • With this technology, users can analyze the recorded imagery forensically to determine what is unfolding in the real-time imagery, drawing connections between people, places, and events
  • The initial $6.7 million Navy contract covers development of two Cardcounter prototypes, with delivery and flight testing by September 2020 aboard the RQ-21A Blackjack
