Sensing and Autonomous Tactical Urban Reconnaissance Network
Saturn blended civil and defence technologies through systems integration to produce a fully autonomous multi-vehicle system.
With a high level and medium level UAV, a UGV, and a control station fusing data from visual, thermal and radar systems, Saturn outperformed its rivals.
All the Saturn's vehicles were guided autonomously by mission- planning software carried on the ground control station. Images were streamed, processed and run through an automatic threat detection system. The software continuously updated throughout the mission directing individual vehicles to potential threats.
