Intelligent Sensor Design

Military and DoD programs often need new sensors designed to achieve strategic goals. SDL designs and builds standards-compliant sensors that provide instantly usable data products, enterprise connectivity, and geo-aware operation for autonomous operation. Our embedded processing architectures offer image processing and target recognition, heath and status broadcast, and modular, interoperable design.


  • Instantly usable data products (NITF, FMV, etc.)
  • Enterprise connectivity (Ethernet, STANAG, CoT, etc.)
  • Geo-aware technology for autonomous operation
  • Embedded processing architectures
  • Image processing and target recognition
  • Health and status broadcast
  • Modular, interoperable design



SDL’s EyePod is an intelligent, geo-aware, day/night-stabilized imaging sensor system for deployment aboard Group III unmanned aircraft systems.
