HOW IT WORKS
PAWS transmits radio waves across it's FOV and measures properties of the backscatter to obtain 3D images in the radio spectrum
With its patentable design, PAWS provides the highest resolution images across various wavelength for improved awareness
PAWS provides a fish-eye FOV at 180° thanks to its novel integrated antenna design
PAWS further provides information on the velocity, dielectric properties and material type of objects in its FOV.
Its wide frequency range further means, it is immune to optical and radio interference. Hence, a great option for dynamic environments.
Imaging done without human interaction, using onboard real-time process methods
Millimeter resolution and accuracy enabled by dense antenna elements

What problem does PAWS address in space?Space robotics constitutes a burgeoning market place, valued at over $4 billion. Within this market, there is a growing need for advanced robotics to capture, release, maintain, repair, assemble, and inspect thousands of satellites and space stations in orbit. However, the current reliance on optical sensors for proximity awareness is a problem. Optical sensors are easily fooled by natural occurring interference, target color, and require compute-heavy algorithms to function reliably. Additionally, the optical wavelength becomes unusable at high sun angles and is easily attenuated. This creates significant safety concerns, especially in the case of crewed space vehicles, as these sensors cannot be fully trusted in dynamic lighting environments. As such, there is a need for a reliable, interference-immune, real-time proximity sensor. By developing a solution to this problem, we provide a safer and more reliable solution for space robots, opening up new possibilities for growth and innovation.
Why is this a problem?The problem of ensuring that space robots do not come into unintended contact during their missions is of paramount importance. The safety of the crew, the health of the client spacecraft, the integrity of surrounding equipment, and the avoidance of damage to robotic tools and manipulators are all critical factors that must be considered. With the growing number and complexity of space robotics operations, this problem is only expected to worsen, and it directly impacts the success of spacecraft operators and customer agreements. The consequences of a collision in space can be catastrophic, leading to the loss of property and, in the worst-case scenario, loss of human life. This is why AllSeeing is focused on developing a reliable, interference-immune, real-time proximity awareness sensor for space robotics. By providing a solution to this critical problem, we can significantly reduce the risk of accidents in space and ensure the safety and success of space missions.
How does PAWS solve this problem?The founder of AllSeeing has engaged in multiple conversations with leading space robot operators on what they need for spatial awareness. This ensures that the technology being built would fit their needs and solve the problem at scale. Therefore, AllSeeing built PAWS: Proximity AWareness Sensor. A SWaP-C high resolution imaging RADAR with a fish eye field-of-view to provide real-time spatial awareness for space robots in the radio domain. PAWS received feed back as satisfying customer needs and providing a cognitive sensor for the most stringent of environments.
