Contract: N61339-03-P-0342
Award Amount: $69,863.00
 

Abstract:

We propose to design an automated cultural feature extraction and placement system by adding plug-in extensions to an existing COTS package like Imagine, or PCI Geomatica. This system will use sophisticated statistical quality assurance to iterativelyrefine feature detection and feature extraction. This process will be self adapting to variances in feature properties based on geographic location or time of the year. As an option a fully functional demonstration prototype based on COTS and Vexceltechnology will be implemented.This work will to a high degree leverage Vexcel's existing technology for automated 3D mapping and expertise in design and implementation of mapping systems for DOD customers. The proposed automated system would significantly lower the cost speed up production of textured feature databases for government and commercial cliens. Since the system will also support commercial satellite images, it will become possible to createfeature databases for international locations, where aerial photography is not available today. With the proposed system in place, Vexcel will be in an excellent position to capture much of this business.
