Sensor technology is developing at a rapid pace. Talking us through how Leidos is involved in this arena is Cayley Rice, Enterprise Lead for Sensors, Collections & Phenomenology at Leidos. Key takeaways: Sensors, Collections & Phenomenology The capabilities Leidos has in this arena The opportunities with sensors for government agencies today What distinguishes Leidos from the commercial space The challenge of cycle time to new innovations
Sensor technology is developing rapidly. New technologies and new applications are occurring frequently in the commercial sector and are being applied, matured or adapted for mission specific programs on the defense side too.
Talking us through how Leidos is involved in this arena is Cayley Rice, Enterprise Lead for Sensors, Collections & Phenomenology at Leidos.
With the influx of products and tools available commercially, and a growing trend of commercial sensors for common items like your doorbell, your smartphone or your thermostat, for example, how and where does Leidos fit into the picture?
What custom sensors isLeidos building and how are these being integrated into systems that can be rapidly deployed into some of the most demanding and mission critical kinds of environments?
Cayley provides a fascinating insight into the challenges and requirements that we have for this technology, as well as the need to speed up the timeframe for adapting sensor systems to commercial speed.
“We're basically adapting technology from the commercial world that got us smartphones, and using that same kind of process to advance micro-electronics for sensors and signal processing.”
