Abstract
THE DEVELOPMENT OF A DIGITAL IMAGERY VERIFICATION SYSTEM (DIVS) TO FULFILL THE NEED TO VERIFY THE IMAGE QUALITY OF ELECTRO-OPTICAL TACTICAL RECONNAISSANCE SYSTEMS DURING DEVELOPMENT AND ACQUISITION, AND DURING DAY-TO-DAY OPERATIONS. THE DIVS IS A TECHNOLOGY SPIN-OFF OF THE ADVANCED TACTICAL AIR RECONNAISSANCE SYSTEM (ATARS) CURRENTLY UNDER DEVELOPMENT BY THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE. THROUGH THE UNIQUE INTEGRATION OF THE ATARS COMPONENTS AND A COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE SILICON GRAPHICS WORKSTATION, A LOW DEVELOPMENT RISK, LOW COST, HIGH PERFORMANCE DIGITAL IMAGE VERIFICATION SYSTEM CAN BE DEVELOPED. THE DIVS WILL BE ABLE TO REPLAY ATARS IMAGERY RECORDED ON MIL-STD2179 MAGNETIC TAPES IN BOTH A SLOW PLAY AND IN A FREEZE FRAME MODE; A RANGE OF MAGNIFICATIONS FROM 1 TO 20 TIMES WILL BE PROVIDED. THE MISSION DATA WILL BE DISPLAYED IN A SEPARATE DISPLAY WINDOW. THE MAN-MACHINE INTERFACE WILL CONSIST OF STANDARD WINDOWS WITH APPROPRIATE FUNCTION KEYS AS REQUIRED. A UNIQUE APPLICATION OF SEVERAL INNOVATIVE METHODS OF VERIFYING IMAGE QUALITY WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR VERIFYING SENSOR PERFORMANCE.
