Abstract
THE PROBLEM ADDRESSED IS THE AUTOMATIC LOCATION AND CLASSIFICATION OF RANDOMLY DISPERSED OBJECTS TO AN ACCURACY OF 1 CM ON THE GROUND IN THE AREA OF 100 M TO 200 M. TO AVOID INTERFERENCE WITH THE DISPERSION OF THE OBJECTS ANY CAMERAS ARE TO BE LOCATED OUTSIDE THE AREA, AND ANY MAKERS PLACED IN THE AREA TO AID LOCATION ARE TO FLUSH WITH THE GROUND OR VERY SMALL. THESE REQUIREMENTS IMPLY THE USE OF TWO TOWER-MOUNTED PANNING CAMERAS OUTSIDE THE OBJECT-DISPERSAL AREA. THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL DEVELOP THE MISSING COMPONENTS OF THE VIDEO LOCATION AND RECOGNITION SYSTEM AND WILL DEMONSTRATE THEM USING TAU IMAGE PROCESSING HARDWARE OPERATING ON PHOTOGRAPHS OR VIDEO TAPES OF THE DISPERSED OBJECTS IN TERRAIN BACKGROUND. NO HARDWARE NEED BE PURCHASED BY THE GOVERNMENT FOR THESE DEMONSTRATIONS. PHASE II WILL COMPLETE THE DESIGN AND IMPLEMENT THE CAMERA SYSTEMS THE IMAGE PROCESSOR, THE OPERATOR INTERFACE, AND THE OVERALL SYSTEM CONTROLLER.
