Psionic Doppler Lidar is a mature technology that optically measures range and velocity vectors at long distances. It enhances performance of defense systems increasing lethality and survivability.

Psionic Defense Applications

Psionic has a wide range of technologies that provide leap-ahead capabilities for a variety of defense applications.  Whether it is situational awareness, fire control, secure laser comms, or navigation Psionic’s active sensing technology is low-power, medium range, stealth, non-jammable and augments existing sensing modalities.

Countering Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UASs)

Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UASs) or drones pose a significant risk to personnel and infrastructure as well as ships, aircraft, and vehicles. They are difficult to track, identify, and defeat. The low cost and ease of operation make them ideal for asymmetric warfare.

There are numerous conventional sensing technologies from radar to RGB/IR/NIR to acoustic that, even when AI is applied, are a foundational but incomplete first step towards an effective counter UAS system to reliab le detect, identify and defeat a singular or swarm of threats.

The missing gap today is precision detection, discrimination, and tracking of small, highly pourous potential threats and at distance. When combined with existing radar and fire control systems, Psionic Doppler Lidar can both discriminate targets and provide highly accurate range and vector velocity information over extended ranges to enable a first round kill capability.

Precision Navigation

Systems throughout the military and commercial worlds are highly dependent on GPS. However, jamming and spoofing are neither expensive nor difficult, making this an ideal tactic for asymmetrical warfare.

The technical remedies available today are limited—hardening GPS helps but doesn’t solve the problem, and high-end IMUs are cost prohibitive for most vehicles and in any regard an incomplete solution because of well-known and unfixable performance limitations such as drift.

SurePath is a tactical navigation technology developed specifically for defense customers that provides the precision necessary to provide the warfighter with a tactical advantage.

Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR)

ISR is a mainstay intelligence tool for all branches of the military, critical for declared and undeclared conflicts and spanning intelligence gathering missions, targeting and battle space management. Existing sensing modalities possess well known capabilities and limitations, however Psionic provides new leap-ahead capabilities for commanders.

Psionic’s PeerlessISR technology provides entirely new possibilities. Integrated into new or legacy ISR packages, PeerlessISR can Quickly determine range and vector velocity at very long distances for multiple objects in scene. Additionally it can capture a vehicle’s signature and track that vehicle in a scene and potentially identify it at another time and place.

Reach out to us today to see how Psionic PeerlessISR can be a gamechanger for the warfighter.
