Science, Research & Development.

Using Neural Networks (NN), AI and ML with data collected from our own patented sensor technology


Inov8ive are researching, developing and designing sensors using Nanoelectronics, Neural Networks (NN), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML).

Kinetic Discharge Sensor is our first patented sensor in development which creates a digitised data stream from small/large arms usable for live feed analytics and/or after-action reviews.

Data includes Barrel health, location, temperature, degrees of freedom, muzzle position, positioning, navigation, timing, micro-movements amongst others.

No calibration, supports transitional, motion, and multi-fire scenarios.
