Slingshot Rapid Development Platform

In addition to a robust tactical imagery exploitation software suite, such as SDL’s VANTAGE™, many customers need a platform that is flexible and lightweight enough to enable rapid prototyping and technology maturation without affecting the stability of deployed systems. SDL’s Slingshot framework provides data visualization software that can quickly be adapted to display new sensor imagery in a short development time. It provides agile and quick data turn around for small programs.


  • Pan, tilt, and zoom on a 3D globe
  • Layers base maps, tactical imagery, and mission information (aircraft position, sensor footprint, health statistics) on the globe for situational awareness
  • Easily adapted to new sensors
  • Fast implementation
  • Interfaces with SDL’s VANTAGE™ server
  • Continual database query based on the user’s current viewport
  • Customized to customer specifications and platforms
  • Government-owned software



Fusion, Exploitation, Algorithm, Targeting High-Altitude Reconnaissance

Under the FEATHAR program, SDL developed enhanced integrated multi‐intelligence sensor systems and fusion processing algorithms for multiple‐networked ISR platforms to identify, geo‐locate, and track enemy targets.


Processing & Display Software

VANTAGE™ is SDL’s leading tactical imagery exploitation software suite.


Rapid Processing & Display Software

SDL’s Slingshot software enables rapid, integrated development of a customized screener using standard interfaces.


Processing & Display Software

RASARView is a powerful processing and visualization tool that can collect and process data from a variety of sensors. Highly intuitive, RASARView works well for persistent surveillance and provides mission feedback in real time.


Deployable UAV System for Targeting, Exploitation, and Reconnaissance

DUSTER demonstrated SDL’s ability to control an array of dissimilar UAV platforms while simultaneously processing and exploiting their sensor data.
