Abstract
"Military command posts of the future are increasingly likely to be located in or near densely populated urban environments. Due to occluding building and trees, these environments make it impossible for a single sensor to monitor potentially threateningevents over an extended period of time. Therefore, the command post must deploy and efficiently monitor a large number of video cameras in order to achieve complete perimeter coverage. Phase I demonstrated the feasibility of integrating multiple videosteams originating from many disparate sources. Phase II will continue the development of a multi-camera surveillance system that automatically monitors a large number of networked video cameras to detect operationally significant events in a clutteredurban landscape. Specifically, this system will allow the operator to construct and specify events of interest using an intuitive event specification language, automatically monitor these events to reduce operator overload and error, and alert operatorsin real-time when pre-defined events of interest occur. Improvements over state-of-the art will be measured in terms of significant event detection, false alarm mitigation, track length and continuity, system scalability, and the efficiency with a mobileoperator can remotely monitor a large number of concurrent video feeds."
