Article

Anduril calls itself an AI product company. AndurilIt buildsstates AIthat platformsit is dedicated to protectsolving national security challenges, such as protecting troops, fightfighting wildfires, performperforming search & rescue missions and for conducting border surveillance. The company was founded in 2017 by Palmer Luckey, who previously invented Oculus Rift virtual realityvirtual reality (VR) headsets. Venture capitalist Peter Thiel provided support. 

Border surveillance

Anduril designed “virtual border wall” tech to surveillance at the US-Mexico border, which merges VR with surveillance tools to create a digital wall of “all-seeing eyes, with intelligence to know what it sees”. Wearing the VR headset allows a person to see a digital world that simulates the view of the real world but highlights moving objects that are a mile away and gives the user the likelihood that what they are seeing is a person and an animal. 

Product

Anduril’s system consists of towers, called Sentry Towers, with radar, communications antennae and a laser-enhanced camera, which can detect motions within a 2-mile radius. It works in conjunction with the company's software called Lattice AI. There is also a drone product called Ghost UAS, which is an autonomous drone that can be used for mapping new territory. Testing Lattice in Texas has been reported by US Customs and Border Protection to catch 55 unauthorized border crossers in a 10-week period.

Anduril’s Lattice platform is theoretically able to detect human figures using AI. Lattice sentry towers are equipped with arrays of sensors. Anduril also supplies drones to support the Lattice program, which the Marine Corps tested in 2018.

Other products

Jamie Hyneman of Mythbusters and creator of a robot called Blendo on Robot WarsRobot Wars, was hired as a contractor with Anduril to build a remote piloted tank to put out wildfires. There are exterior water sprayers. To prevent electromechanical problems due to heat, a coolant composed of 50/50 glycerin and water sprays continuously over the entire interior. The coolant absorbs the heat and is passed off to the thousand gallons of water in the tanks. The tank is designed to be able to rescue and take passengers.
