Aviation division signs pioneering program deal with Air Force


Seeing Machines Limited (AIM: SEE, "Seeing Machines" or the "Group"), the advanced computer vision technology company that designs AI-powered operator monitoring systems to improve transport safety announced that it will provide eye and face tracking sensor technologies to the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) for a new Pilot Training System, marking the first commercial program agreement for the Group's Aviation division.


RAAF Acting Director Integration and Innovation, Danny McCreadie commented: "The 25-plus year Pilot Training System program will introduce new high-performance aircraft, resources and facilities to help develop the next generation of Australian military pilots.


"Seeing Machines' operator monitoring technology will initially be installed in two Pilatus PC-21 advanced flight training simulators to aid pilot candidates in reaching proficiency, support and optimise pilot streaming. This will improve overall training efficiencies, reduce cost and failure rate."


In line with the RAAF's Plan JERICHO, its strategy to transform by capitalising on future high technology systems, this initial engagement will enable Seeing Machines to demonstrate its core capability, with considerable potential for future deployment across a broad range of military platforms and systems. 


Ken Kroeger, CEO of Seeing Machines commented: "We are delighted to debut our Aviation eye and face tracking capability with the Royal Australian Air Force. This program follows on from our successful engagement with several major airline carriers, simulator manufacturers and air traffic management services and is affirmation that the substantial work done by our team to develop this market is now paying off.


"We have been working closely with the RAAF to understand their training needs, as well as their broader priorities and capability requirements to develop the best solution using the Seeing Machines platform technology.


"With Air Force's transition to an integrated force, utilising advanced technology and aircraft capabilities, we are well aligned to support and deliver world-class training and operational efficiencies with this pioneering program."
