Teal drones to fly Immervision sensors for low-light security uses
Designer and manufacturer of security and defense drones, Teal, says it has signed an agreement to use sensors produced by Canadian optical products specialist Immervision to provide its UAVs with low-light vision capabilities for aerial data collection operations.
The tie-up with Immervision was announced during the first day of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, and marked the first major move by Teal holding company Red Cat since it decided to off-load its consumer UAV tech divisions and focus on defense and security applications. The aim of those deals is to facilitate the impressive gains Teal has made over the past 18 months in the specialized sector, including accords struck with US military agencies.
