KxM™

AI/ML Edge Processor

Enhance your UxVs with AI/ML at the Edge

KxM provides enterprise UxV users the ability to conduct precision data collection operations with the latest sensor technologies and integrate seamlessly with artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) algorithms.  Built as a native extension of the Kinesis common control architecture, KxM serves as the integration hub for the entire UxV platform including enhanced navigation, communications, sensors and various payloads.  Additionally, AI/ML algorithms can be hosted onboard, at the edge, unlocking new capabilities on commercial UAS platforms with the flexibility to adapt to future enterprise needs.

Enterprises invest considerable time and effort to select the right robotic platform for data collection operations.  With KxM, enterprises can now upgrade these platforms as needed to meet their specific operational requirements while simultaneously reducing the need for multiple “one off” or custom solutions.

This provides a tremendous opportunity for savings and will maximize the ROI from current UAS capital investments. KxM unlocks a collection of powerful capability add-ons as a simple lightweight bolt-on payload for enterprise class UAS platforms (i.e. DJI Matrice 200/600 series or AeroVironment Vapor 35/55).

The KxM, in conjunction with the Kinesis common control software, creates an AI enabled network for your UxV assets systems providing a combined data analytics capability that is more powerful than the sum of the parts.
