MAKS 2019: Zala Aero develops world’s first artificial intelligence identification system


Zala Aero, a Russian developer of unmanned aerial vehicles, which is affiliated with the Kalashnikov Group of the Russian State Corporation Rostec, has developed the world’s first artificial intelligence visual identification system (AIVI), a Zala Aero representative told TASS at the 14th International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2019. The air show is taking place in the town of Zhukovsky near Moscow from August 27 to September 1.

AIVI, according to Zala Aero, is installed on drones and embraces the lower hemisphere. "The AIVI system uses modular cameras and artificial intelligence for full analysis of the bottoming surface under the aircraft. It makes it possible to increase 60 times the monitoring area during one flight and reduce the identification time," Zala Aero said.

According to the developers, AIVI can be used for air reconnaissance, sea and ground rescue operations involving the use of searching parties as well as for ecological monitoring and detection of objects in cities and in the woodland.

Unlike the existing similar systems AIVI has a panoramic view (360 degrees) and ensures multidimensional images from several video cameras.

"AIVI processes video streams onboard in real time without transmission of huge data volumes to a ground control station. It identifies and classifies more than 1,000 static and moving objects simultaneously and can create instantaneously orthophotoes with a resolution of up to 100 Ml," Zala Aero said adding that the AIVI technology makes it possible to photograph the bottom surface with minimal delay without any direct involvement on the operator’s part.
