A High Level Decision Making Module

OMNISCIENT is a multi-sensor modular fusion and autonomy system based on the UK MOD Dstl SAPIENT High Level Decision Making Module (HLDMM) architecture. It fuses information from multiple sensors in real-time to identify threats and is capable of controlling steerable sensors and teams of UxVs (UAVs and UGVs) at full Level 5 autonomy. It integrates sensor information using deep probabilistic algorithms to detect, classify, and identify targets, threats, and their behaviours, and can support a wide range of sensors including RADAR, LIDAR and EO/IR cameras, including Pan Tilt Zoom cameras as well as UAV and UGV platforms.

The system is capable of raising alerts based on the presence of people or vehicles in areas of interest. It also provides the ability to detect complex patterns of events and behaviours such as U-turns, loitering, tail-gating, and anomalous behaviour such as not re-appearing from dead zones. The HLDMM uses probabilistic analysis to maximise threat detection and minimise false alarms. Its threat analysis process is extendible, allowing users to define their own complex patterns that are operationally relevant. Threat alerts contain human readable descriptions and imagery of relevance and events leading up to the alert can be replayed.

More with less

The HLDMM utilises a powerful, flexible sensor management process that can control a team of sensors such as Pan Tilt Zoom cameras, RADARs, and UAVs to search for, localise, classify, and capture imagery of threats. It uses state-of-the-art optimisation to decide what each sensor should do and when, and is capable of monitoring multiple zones and threats simultaneously, automatically adapting to sensor failure and occlusion. This means users can surveil a larger area with fewer sensors.

The system self-configures to find the threats that the user defines, achieving an optimal balance of automation and intuitive behaviour. Alerts are ranked according to context to ensure the operator’s attention is focussed on the most important events. This significantly reduces the operator’s burden, allowing focus on operational response.

SAPIENT compliant

OMNISCIENT is the world’s first UK MOD SAPIENT compliant HLDMM. SAPIENT is a next generation multi-sensor processing architecture, designed to be plug-and-play, allowing easy and fast connection of sensors from different suppliers, rather than being locked into a single supply chain. The UK MOD is actively encouraging sensor suppliers to adopt the SAPIENT architecture.
