The Most Advanced Common Operating Picture Yet

SEED in collaboration with Esri is a common operating picture that is capable of real time analysis and sensor data geo-rectification that can pull in real time streams of information turning it into specific data targets pushed to your phone or other web accessible device.  Our software is capable of tracking aircraft, UAVs, vessels, and incorporate real time feeds from such disparate data as social media to acoustic sensors.  It uses a cloud based architecture to distribute data to web enable platforms.  It can incorporate real time location data, sensor imagery, social media providing analytics on historic information.

  • Data Fusion and Indexing. Data is auto-indexed and archived. Geospatial metadata is plotted on map interfaces
  • Common Operating Picture. Able to track ships, aircraft, personnel, and share in one common real time database.
  • Nontraditional sources. Information from sources such as social media, twitter are tracked to the location of the feed and person posting.
  • Rapidly searchable data from live captures back with simple click and drag time sliders. Data is also searchable by key word, and location
  • Analytics are simple to create and powerfully fast to generate.
  • SEED powerfully automates metadata generation such as animal counts and mission details. Timely and costly post processing is completed the moment it’s captured.

VDOS Global is a member of the University of Alaska led Pan Pacific UAS Test Range which is one of the selected FAA UAS test sites.  Additionally VDOS manages the Warm Springs UAS Test site located in central Oregon with over 1,000 sq miles of operating space from the surface to 18,000 MSL.  For more information go to www.wsuas.com.
