Abstract
The advances in Unmanned Vehicles (UAV) technology as well as in video technology have made it possible to record a large volume of video images from regions of interest. Cameras placed in UAVs enable to obtain more information for use by counterinsurgency operations. However, for this information to be integrated into the analysis system, the data that comes from these videos has to be translated into expressions that can semantically connect to priority and specific intelligence requirements. Currently, only a few expressions from the video populate the DoD Discovery Metadata Specification (DDMS) cards used to bring the information to the search and analysis system. Furthermore, creating these expressions requires in many cases that a human annotates frames on the video since there is no automatic process by which data from a video image automatically generates the metadata on the DDMS card. During Phase I, our team will investigate the feasibility of automatically generating the DDMS-structured metadata from video analytics and from additional contextual information for representative video files.
