Abstract
A wide variety of unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) carrying various sensors are increasingly deployed on today’s battlefield for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions. These UAV platforms provide a wealth of ISR data mainly captured with video sensors. These video sensors provide considerable amounts of data for exploitation, suitable for various types of assisted and autonomous processing including target recognition, tracking, contextual scene analysis, aimpoint generation, forensic analysis, and behavioral characterization. Generally the smaller UAVs do not have existing sensor models and sensor pointing direction may not be well known. These limitations make associating accurate position information with the full motion video (FMV) difficult using current techniques. ISL is proposing to upgrade the Precision Georegistration and Targeting Application (PGTA) developed under a Navy sponsored Phase II SBIR to automatically produce georegistered FMV in real-time. The FMV is not required to have an associated sensor model. Georegistered FMV will have a three-dimensional geoposition coordinate (latitude, longitude, and elevation) associated with every pixel of the video as well as an estimate of the circular error (CE) and linear error (LE). The georegistered FMV application will provide for timely exploitation of the surveillance data for tactical strike planning and intelligence applications.
