[Avionics Today 04-13-2015] Boeing has acquired 2d3 Sensing, a wholly owned subsidiary of OMG plc that specializes in motion imagery processing of critical Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) data generated from aerial platforms.

2d3 Sensing’s software and services are used by the U.S. Air Force and other government and commercial customers, with the company’s products currently found on the ScanEagle and Integrator systems provided by Boeing subsidiary Insitu. With the acquisition Boeing looks to allow further integration of 2d3 Sensing’s video analysis and other capabilities into Insitu and other Boeing platforms.

“The services [2d3] provide highlight ways in which computer vision and image processing technologies can be used to enhance and analyze full motion video data captured and recorded during live missions. We look forward to incorporating such improvements into our unmanned vehicles,” said Ryan Hartman, Insitu president and CEO. Boeing did not release the terms of the agreement.
