SiLC’s Eyeonic Vision Sensor Extends Detection Range to Over 2km, Boosting Advanced Perimeter Security Applications

SiLC Technologies, Inc. (SiLC), a leader in the development of integrated single-chip FMCW LiDAR solutions, today announced a significant breakthrough in machine vision technology. The company’s Eyeonic Vision Sensor now boasts a detection range exceeding 2 kilometers, setting a new industry standard. This advancement not only doubles SiLC’s previous record but also surpasses the capabilities of any existing LiDAR system in the market. The extended range and precision of the Eyeonic Vision Sensor are pivotal in applications such as uncrewed autonomous system (UAS) detection and discrimination, a field where SiLC collaborates closely with High Point Aerotechnologies (HPA).

Dr. Jeff Maas, CTO of High Point Aerotechnologies, commented, “SiLC has made tremendous strides in advancing LiDAR technology for perimeter security and drone detection. Their investments in extending range, polarimetry, waveform control, and optical signal processing for the Eyeonic Vision Sensor endeavors to enhance target differentiation of ambiguous targets in clutter-limited environments. This LiDAR technology is a crucial complement to radar and visible/infrared camera sensors.”

Dr. Mehdi Asghari, CEO of SiLC Technologies, added, “Our latest achievement with the Eyeonic Vision Sensor is not just about setting new records; it’s about enabling practical, real-world applications that require the highest levels of precision and reliability. Our collaboration with HPA to incorporate LiDAR into their Counter-UAS systems is a testament to the versatility and impact of our technology.”

SiLC’s Eyeonic Vision Sensor, featuring an advanced FMCW LiDAR System-on-Chip (SoC), is a cornerstone of the company’s innovative approach to machine vision. Its capabilities are crucial for applications requiring advanced warning and detailed environmental understanding, such as in perimeter security and drone detection.
