Research Institution
The Hyperspectral Visualization Environment (HVE) has been developed under SBIR funding for allowing the use of multi and hyperspectral data in the NAVAIR targeting process. These new data sources will allow the detection and targeting of hidden targets as well as better terrain classification. The HVE has been developed for rapid processing of a variety of multi and hyperspectral data sources by non-expert users. It is estimated to be at TRL6 in development since it and took part in an end-to-end demonstration in September 08. Under this proposed funding, TRA will continue to work with the potential users of this program and make necessary modifications to increase its utility. In particular, we will add functionality to increase the interaction between the Rapid Review portion and the Detailed Analysis portion, increase the size of images handled to enhance overall performance in rural areas, allow the use of signature data bases, and conduct training. The steps performed will take the HVE to TRL 7 and ready for a full operational demonstration.
