Every sector has exhibited tremendous interest in accepting and leveraging AI-powered tools to experience improved workflow and productivity. Statista has predicted that $7.35 billion will be globally invested by 2025 to adopt AI-driven utilities.
The defense and security sector has seen how the incredible power of AI can revolutionize the conventional work process. Drone or Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) has long been an integral part of the security industry, but AI-fueled drones have brought further amelioration providing the ability to capture, share, and analyze data in real time.
AEE Aviation has announced that it will expand its partnership with ModalAI to empower its drones with the ability to navigate environments more efficiently. According to this announcement made in CES 2019, the AEE Mach 2 will be the first product under this extended partnership which will have a better understanding of its flying environment and the obstacles.
Leveraging ModalAI's features and the advanced Qualcomm Flight Pro Platform Mach 2 will be well equipped with Simultaneous Location And Mapping (SLAM) which will enable it to depict a virtual map and orient accordingly in real time. SLAM is a popular cutting-edge technology which has gained tremendous traction, and Energias Market Research has predicted, the global market of SLAM will be of $3,319.9 million by 2025.
This new device will have access to GPS denied area and will come with a battery life of 22-minutes and advanced sensor camera by Sony to produce 4k videos and 13 MP images. These AI-powered drones are able to revamp the conventional concept of security and can uproot the problems jeopardizing the security system.
Previously, ALPHA was designed and tested to help the U.S. Air Force, and a report published in the Journal of Defense Management shared about its capability of keeping up with the pressure to combat barriers as it could move 250 times faster than the wink of an eye.
Researchers make a relentless endeavor to rediscover new aspects in this area which still has immense potential to change the existing landscape. The UK intends to launch Taranis drone by 2030 which is expected to replace Tornado GR4 fighter planes. The CES 2019 witnessed different ideas to introduce a further improvement in AI that can change the existing beliefs.
