Abstract
In this SBIR proposal, ObjectVideo proposes an automated video content analysis system that ingests video and sensor data from a multitude of video sensors and produces meta information representing their contents in the form of modified DoD Discovery Metadata Specification (DDMS) cards. The human and machine-readable DDMS cards provide a compact representation of targets, their attributes, trajectories, and scene elements which are combined with the context of mission goals and specific needs of a warfighter in order to identify and retrieve video clips of most relevance. A GoogleEarth like map-based user interface allows interactive query input and result visualization to operators on desktop computers and handheld devices. The entire system is built upon a Service Oriented Architecture to ensure cross platform functionality, interoperability and scalability. To achieve these goals, ObjectVideo leverages its decade long experience of developing real-time intelligent video surveillance software and situational awareness systems. While the capabilities developed under this project will greatly enhance the automated dissemination of ISR video data, ObjectVideo envisions that they will also benefit its commercial software for image analysis and video event retrieval.
