Abstract
A wide variety of unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) carrying various sensors are increasingly deployed on today"s battlefield for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions. These UAV platforms provide a wealth of ISR data mainly captured with video sensors. These video sensors provide considerable amounts of data for exploitation, suitable for various types of assisted and autonomous processing including target tracking, aimpoint generation, forensic analysis, and behavioral characterization. Generally the smaller UAVs do not have existing sensor models and sensor pointing direction may not be well known. These limitations make associating accurate position information with the full motion video (FMV) difficult using current techniques. Under previous SBIR funding, ISL developed the Full Motion Video Georegistration Application (FMVGA) to automatically produce georegistered FMV, i.e. a three-dimensional geoposition coordinate (latitude, longitude, and elevation) associated with every pixel of the video without the requirement for an associated sensor model or platform position information. In the proposed program, ISL will implement improvements identified by users during the evaluation process. These improvements will include 1) computational improvements, 2) application improvements to improve robustness, and 3) interface improvements. At the end of this program the FMVGA will have been evaluated in an operational setting and available for transition.
