Celestial body imaging allows for high-accuracy orientation estimation (e.g., for a soldier in the field) and high-accuracy location estimation in a GPS-denied environment.

“In 2012, we began collaborating with Dr. Yossi Rubner and his team on navigation and orientation systems using image processing, dedicated algorithms, software, and hardware. It has been an exceptional collaboration since then.”

The Challenge

To develop a solution that provides location estimation in a variety of scenarios.

The Solution

We have cooperated with the customer to develop algorithms for orientation and location estimation, efficient and accurate sky map search, camera calibration processes, image processing algorithms supporting daylight, nighttime, and twilight modes, and algorithms for collimating the different system components.
