Canadian forces are conducting an operational evaluation of Kestrel’s automated target detection software capabilities on board the intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft, CP-140 Aurora.

Kestrel is plug-and-play detection software that is used to process real-time aerial surveillance imagery from the CP-140 Aurora aircraft’s EO/IR full motion video sensors.

The system helps automatically detect moving targets such as vehicles, vessels and dismounts on the ground, as well as supporting wide-area surveillance tasks.

The CP-140 Aurora, operated by the Canadian Forces Air Command, is primarily used in coastal surveillance and sovereignty patrols.

The system will improve the aircraft’s operational capabilities and will enhance situational awareness capabilities of Canadian forces for domestic and international surveillance.
