Title: High Performance Video Compression for Narrow Band Channels
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Contract: N/A
Award Amount: $374,726.00
 

Abstract:

This project will develop and demonstrate a design for a wavelet-based compression system that will support the tranmission of video and still data bia UHF satellite communication channels and twisted-pair cuircuits. The system will feature real-time teleconferecing and the ability to rapidly transmit still imagery and video material at user selectable quality levels. The project will focus on engineering trade studies to optimize compression performance in the narrow band environment. Integrated channel coding techniques will be required for resistance to noise, fading and interference. System performance will be demonstrated using non-real-time software simulations. The relationships between image quality, compression level, latency, channel corruption and processor resource requirements will be derived. Anticipated Benefits: Improved command and control, training and morale. Commercial and government applicatoins in video teleconferencing, remote medical consultation, teleradiology, security/video surveillance, training and video entertainment.
