Mosaic ATM builds easily deployed custom AI applications powered by deep learning to automate object detection and classification across the entire aerospace industry.

Aerospace Computer Vision | Innovation & Automation within Reach

Computer vision is a field of artificial intelligence that trains a computer to extract information from images that would normally require human vision.

The goal of these deep learning models is not only to see but also to process and provide useful results based on the observation.

Machines can accurately classify and summarize images, identify objects, find similar images, and more. With the right application, they can react to what they see and automate a traditionally time-consuming process.

Mosaic will fit an aerospace solution to you & your business processes, not the other way around.

The air transportation and aerospace industries are adopting computer vision, yet many experience challenges.

According to the leading market research firm Research and Markets – the aviation computer vision market is expected to grow to $28B in annual revenue by 2025.

Based on the latest media hype, you might think an aviation business can point convolutional neural networks at a problem, and presto, they have machines classifying images. In reality, properly designing and deploying a functional computer vision system involves complex steps that require significant expertise to carry out successfully.

It is very challenging for a single piece of software to solve multiple use cases. Each organization’s data is quite different. A Fast R-CNN might fit a set of data inputs for one use case, while an SSD is better at identifying a different set of images. If you are going for a competitive advantage, why not build something powerful & unique to your business?

Without understanding the mechanics behind these models, you run the risk of not understanding the outputs, not being able to tune the model, or not being able to translate analytics to business terms. You’ll spend a lot of time and money on a failed project if you don’t rely on the experts.

Many companies have failed to use computer vision because they lack the required experience. Experts with significant computer vision experience can help you create adaptive and customizable models with understandable outputs and analytics that translate to business value.

Mosaic has helped several aviation customers put computer vision to work for them.

Autonomous Routing

ML interprets and responds to outside environments by processing data from sensors, including cameras, lidar, and radar.

Asset Identification

Organizations need to conduct inspections on their physical infrastructure, computer vision more accurately predicts degradation & alerts maintenance.

Defect Alerts

Aviation operators can train deep learning models to identify defects in their aircraft, improving air safety and mitigating risk.

Facial Recognition

Computer vision excels at identifying unique people using facial recognition. Low-hanging fruit includes the use cases around security, loyalty, and segmentation.

Targeting Systems

AI can be utilized to enhance or automate targeting systems, an essential development with faster missile systems that require faster reactions than humans can provide.

Baggage Detection

Manage baggage operations more efficiently and effectively by counting and capturing bags and containers as they are loaded on the aircraft.

Mosaic can build you a powerful, custom computer vision solution. Our data scientists are experts at the deep learning development needed to train these machines. Our data engineers can help gather and organize your data. Our software engineers can integrate your computer vision models with products and deploy them in a scalable infrastructure.

Buying an out-of-the-box solution might sound nice, but tuning deep learning takes substantial customization from an experienced data scientist. If a company promises you an out-of-the-box solution to classify images, they do not understand the complexity of computer vision or artificial intelligence, and you run the risk of a black box that doesn’t work.

Mosaic works with our customers where they are. We frequently coach and mentor our customers even while solving critical business problems.
