Abstract
We will develop a concept for locating, identifying, and tracking carrier embarked aircraft with: - no modifications to aircraft; - existing and new video cameras; and - advanced techniques for image recognition, sensor fusion, and tracking. Team member Ball Aerospace will develop a modular concept for existing and new video equipment for day/night, all weather, high clutter, and high interference conditions. Ball's sophisticated imaging models will simulate scenes under user specified lighting and environmental conditions, and camera characteristics. DeveloSoft's proprietary techniques for locating and identifying military targets from visible, infra-red, radar, and LIDAR imagery enably real time object identification in day, night, all weather, high clutter, and high interference. Due to their accuracy and speed they are being commercialized into new products for the blind/visually impaired and satellite systems. These techniques will be designed and tested in Phase I on Ball's simulated scenery. Finally, COTS equipment will be identified that meets EATS functional requirements.
