Teleidoscope —
Long Range Detection, Identification, & Tracking for the National Capital Region's Integrated Air Defense System

The Problem This Solution Solves

The Joint Air Defense Operations Center relies on cameras throughout the National Capital Region to positively identify aircraft and provide visual warnings to ensure aircraft adhere to restricted flight zones. The current camera systems, born out of the post-9/11 security environment, are over 15 years old and nearing end of life.

The Solution

Beyond providing a simple hardware refresh for electro-optical and infrared sensors, the machine learning-powered camera system developed for this solution incorporates software improvements such as auto-tracking capabilities, automated target recognition, image and video compression, and the ability to provide these performance enhancements at edge. This solution has improved the detection of aircraft in the National Capital Region by 10x the previous baseline.

Teleidoscope is one of the many companies we have contracted with in a variety of focus areas.

The DIU Commercial Solutions Catalog is a compilation of both our successful and transitioned prototypes. In conjunction with our Department of Defense (DoD) partners, we have evaluated, adapted, and tested these commercial solutions to solve your organization’s AI/ML, autonomy, cyber, human systems, and space challenges.

Prototype “Success Memos,” which enable DoD and U.S. Government (USG) entities to enter into Production Other Transaction agreements without re-competing, are available through DIU.

If you work for a DoD or USG organization, these technology solutions are available for purchase right now. To learn more about whether these capabilities can meet your organization’s unique operational needs or how to acquire them, please send a direct inquiry through DIU’s Contact Us page.
