Submission + - Facial Recognition From Small Drone Video Imagery (

garymortimer writes: "Hood Technology announces new facial recognition capability utilizing stabilized airborne video imagery in small, tactical unmanned aerial vehicles (Small-UAVs).

According to Hood Tech’s Dr. Andy von Flotow, “NIIRS 8 imagery is no longer enough to stay ahead of expectations; we are now recognizing faces and reading license plates from stand-off ranges beyond audible detectability. To achieve this, we have developed new imagers and have completely reinvented our stabilization methods. Our stabilization is now good enough that we can select a specific door when pointing a laser.”"
