Data capturing session, ATLAS, May 2018

During May 2018, the ALADDIN technical team executed a data recording campaign on the ATLAS premises. ATLAS (Air Traffic Laboratory for Advanced unmanned Systems) is a Test Flight Centre located in Villacarrillo (Jaen, Spain) and managed by ALADDIN partner FADA-CATEC. Recordings were captured by ALADDIN’s sensing arsenal. Namely, a 2D long range radar developed by IDS, two Infrared cameras developed by HGH, one PTZ camera and one digital optical camera developed by PIAP as well as three eight channel microphone arrays developed by IDMT. ALADDIN’s sensors were deployed to capture multiple drone flights, utilizing a DJI Phantom 4 and a Parrot Disco. The purpose of this campaign was to produce a dataset that will support the training of the deep learning methodologies to produce classifier and detector for each different sensor capability as well as multi-sensor information fusion.

Photos taken during the data capturing session at ATLAS test centre are shown below.
