The Overwatch Imaging Quality Assurance Analyst will perform quality control checks
on precision optical smart sensor systems during the development cycle to ensure
items meet technical specifications. This team member ensures products are built to
our high standards and working as intended to support delivery of advanced imaging
payloads for airborne systems.
Overwatch Imaging is automating the collection, analysis, and delivery of time-critical geospatial intelligence for missions that matter. Overwatch AI software automatically manages airborne sensors through smart pointing commands, automated detection of objects of interest, and computer-generated reporting of collected intelligence outputs for communications-efficient reporting. Overwatch smart sensors are multi-camera, multi-spectral stabilized airborne payloads designed for automated operation by edge computers rather than human sensor operators. Together, our capabilities enable life-saving agencies to scan wide areas and find small objects of interest, faster and more efficiently than with human-in-the-loop systems, so our customers can focus less on the search and more on the best response.
