3D Drone Surveillance
Ashima Devices has developed a 3D surveillance technology for use with the company’s ForceField drones. These small unmanned helicopters can be clipped to a soldier’s standard field-gear kit. When deployed, the drones provide a real-time, 3D view of the battlefield on this handheld computer. Future enhancements include thermal imaging, so troops can see heat signatures from weapons and vehicles.

Slow-Motion Replays
Harris Corp., which developed the slow-mo technology that the NFL uses, has started assisting the Pentagon with a “situational awareness” tracking system. It uses video from military drones and creates a log of battlefield threats — and can even flag one particular enemy troop for closer analysis.
