Abstract
THE ARC DIGITAL RASTER IMAGE (ADRI) IS A NEW MAPPING, CHARTING, AND GEODESY PRODUCT WHICH HAS BEEN DEVELOPED BY THE AIR FORCE. THE ADRI IS A DIGITAL ORTHOPHOTO COUPLED WITH A FILE OF DIGITAL TERRAIN ELEVATION DATA. THE ADRI HAS BEEN DEVELOPED TO RAPIDLY DERIVE THE THREE-DIMENSIONAL COORDINATES OF ANY FEATURE IN THE ORTHOPHOTO. CURRENTLY THE PRIMARY APPLICATION OF THE ADRI IS FOCUSED AT THE AIR FORCE UNIT LEVEL BUT IT HAS OBVIOUS APPLICABILITY AT BOTH THE FORCE LEVEL AND IN THE COMMAND, CONTROL AND INTELLIGENCE (C2I) AREAS, AS WELL AS SEVERAL UNIQUE APPLICATIONS TO THE JOINT SERVICE IMAGE PROCESSING SYSTEM (JSIPS). IT IS THE INTENT OF THIS INVESTIGATION TO EXPLORE AND DEMONSTRATE THE INTEGRATION OF THE ADRI PRODUCT IN JSIPS TO PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING AUTOMATED CAPABILITIES: (1) CORRELATING ADRI WITH UNEXPLOITED IMAGERY TO DETERMINE PRECISE LOCATION OF IMAGE CORNER COORDINATES, PERCENT OF AND PRECISE LOCATION OF CLOUD COVERAGE, DETERMINATION OF WARPING COEFFICIENTS FOR IMAGE RECTIFICATION, PRECISE IMAGE REGISTRATION FOR INTEGRATION, AND OVERLAY OF THE ADRI IMAGE AND OTHER PRODUCTS; AND (2) MERGING AN ADRI WITH UNEXPLOITED IMAGERY CAN PROVIDE THE IMAGE INTERPRETER WITH AN IMAGE REFERENCE FOR IMPROVING THE SPEED AND ACCURACY OF REPORTING.
