The Mosaic ATM team proposes an innovative real-time exploitation framework for video and Lidar processing whose structure can be reconfigured at optempo to meet evolving requirements. We propose to leverage the tremendous commercial investment in products, such as Google Earth, for 3D coincident display of Lidar and video streams processed using mature technology components whose integration will be made possible with the Advanced Lidar and Video Exploitation (ALiVE) framework being proposed by the Mosaic team. Our vision for a modular, open framework is a refreshing and long overdue departure from the closed solutions in use today. In Phase I, we provide the gov't with a prototype system based on COTS and FOSS components for near real-time georegistration and display of video and Lidar. The Mosaic team will also establish an open, modular framework that can be scaled and extended to new sensors, processing, and users. Mosaic ATM has teamed with EarthNC and BAE to create a highly qualified team capable of rapid innovation and expedient technology transition to the warfighter. BENEFITS: Development of Mosaic ATM''s Advanced Lidar and Video Exploitation (ALiVE) framework will provide new capabilities in sensor registration as well as multi-sensor dynamic modeling of environments whose physical structure is plagued with uncertainty and subject to change on time scales of operational relevance. ALiVE's use of government controlled and open standards for communication and data management will provide the Department of Defense with a Video/Lidar processing solution that exhibits both tremendous longevity and the plug-n-play configurability that technology providers have thus far failed to deliver. Semi and fully autonomous platforms equipped with Video and Lidar sensors will benefit from a new found capability to accurately assess terrain structure online and immediately adjust computer vision algorithms tasked with interpreting the environment using passive imagers.
