Abstract
AFSOC and other warfighting organizations have the requirement to distinguish enemy combatants from neutral non-combatants either alone or in groups. Movement, object manipulation, and other human activities vary widely and subtle interactions within groups occur continuously. Support tools are essential for the user particularly those that automatically detect, extract, and track relevant visual cues. DEC is developing a combination of sensors and algorithms which resolve sufficient detail in group images at indicated ranges that an estimation of intent can be with enough confidence to add value to user operations by reducing false alarm tasking of more expensive ISR Assets. BENEFITS: The DEC team will methodically construct a transitionable capability by leveraging a substantial existing technology base. DEC team will then conduct a successful laboratory demonstration based on recorded sensor data during Phase I and a flight demonstration for the prototype to be built during Phase II. DEC will work with the existing AFSOC ISR supply chain to begin transition and commercialization.
