Abstract
THE LOW INTENSITY CONFLICT VIEWER (LIC-VIEW) IS A TOTAL SYSTEM CONCEPT FOR INTEGRATING FOUR TECHNOLOGIES: COMPUTER GRAPHIC PROCESSING, IMAGE PROCESSING, COMPUTER VISION SYSTEM, AND PHOTOGRAMMETRY. THE INTEGRATION OF THESE FOUR TECHNOLOGIES IN A TOTAL SYSTEMS CONCEPT, WITH FEEDBACK CONTROL, WILL IMPROVE BOTH THE ROBUSTNESS AND THE PRECISIN OF REMOTELY MEASURING 3-D SURFACES AND OBJECTS AS RECORDED BY STEREOSCOPIC IMAGERY. THIS SYSTEM CONCEPT EXPANDS THE APPLICATION OF THE STEREO PHOTOGRAMMETRIC PROCESSES SO THAT THIS PROCESS CAN BE INTEGRATED WITH HIGH RESOLUTION RECONNAISSANCE IMAGERY TO GIVE THE OPERATOR A DYNAMIC PERSPECTIVE VIEW OF POTENTIAL LOW INTENSITY CONFLICT AREAS. RECENT MILITARY EVENTS HAS CLEARLY SHOWN THAT A LARGE MAJORITY OF THESE LOW INTENSITY CONFLICTS WILL BE CONDUCTED IN VERY DYNAMIC 3-D AREAS SUCH AS URBAN AREAS, MANUFACTURING SITES, TRANSPORTATION CENTERS, ETC. THE LICVIEW WILL PROVIDE HIGH RESOLUTION PERSPECTIVE VIEWS OF THESE DYNAMIC 3-D AREAS SO THAT MILITARY OPERATIONS CAN BE REHEARSED, ANALYZED, AND DETAILED MANEUVERS PLANNED PRIOR TO COMMITMENT OF FORCES.
