Our product line delivers cutting edge technology designed to enhance full motion video.

ARS, our Augmented Reality Mapping System, has quickly become the de-facto standard in government and law enforcement, as well as in markets such as aerial firefighting, and wildlife and utility surveys. ARS is delivered as a turn-key solution, pre-installed and pre-configured for each customer installation on our custom-designed hardware.

BEAR builds on the success of the ARS line and has quickly become the world’s foremost moving map solution for broadcast news, bringing unsurpassed relevancy and relatability to airborne coverage.

We developed our gimbal to provide a radically different approach to capturing full motion video and our ION digital video recorder to offer unmatched flexibility and scaleability to solve any video problem.

Organizing and archiving full motion video is made easy through Earthscape, our cloud-based video management tool that gives you powerful control over your video and metadata.

The tougher the better. We love doing what everyone else thinks is impossible. Our engineers are crazy that way.
If you are crazy that way too, consider joining us!

  • We think back to where we were at a couple of years ago and we question ourselves of how did we ever do this job before we had this system because it’s made our life simpler, it’s made us respond faster and its even made things safer for us because we’re giving accurate descriptions of locations of where we are working or maybe where our officers need to be. Huge life saver.

  • ARS allows our TFOs to focus on the mission and tactics instead of navigating, substantially reducing their workload. Now streets, addresses and business names are displayed right on the camera image, allowing the TFO to always keep eyes on the target while knowing their exact location at all times. ARS takes all the guesswork out of navigating and identifying addresses, it’s the next step in the evolution of ALE mapping systems.

  • We have always viewed technology as a means to an end — that ‘end’ is helping officers do their jobs better and look like rock stars in the air.
