The proposed effort configures Picogrid Platform for persistent flightline surveillance to protect high value assets and lower the cognitive load placed on the Defenders. Flightline Virtual Electronic Wall (FlightVIEW) will offer easy to deploy, scalable, and low-cost surveillance for many under-protected Air Force flightlines in CONUS. The new variant will include Virtual Fence functionality allowing a new and optimized granular configuration of the perimeter line, video view optimized for fast-moving objects at the flightline and computer vision optimizations using transfer learning with CAFB dataset for improved performance. FlightVIEW will be demonstrated at Cannon AFB, a critical airfield used by Air Force Special Operations Command for training, transportation, and logistics. It is one of many DoD and public airfields in the United States that currently does not have a continuous fence or a comprehensive surveillance system. The innovation will be widely applicable around all of these locations.
