Research Institution

In Phase-I, ObjectVideo (OV) prototyped a system that ingests video from a variety of sensors (airborne, ground-based, maritime) and generates meta-data representing their contents in the form of modified DoD Discovery Metadata Specification (DDMS) cards that provide a compact representation of targets, their attributes, trajectories, and scene elements. This information is combined with the context of mission goals and specific needs of warfighters, specified as queries using interactive interfaced, in order to identify and retrieve relevant video clips. In the Phase-II, OV will advance this technology by creating DDMS adapter SDK that will allow existing ISR platforms to integrate this capability assisting in sensor data exploitation by large ISR enterprises, such as DCGS-MC, by providing a flexible and scalable data framework enabling horizontal integration of formats and capabilities, including NATOs, STANAG4676 and NGA's MISB. A real-time automated video dispatcher will analyze the DDMS cards as they become available and identify video segments of interest based on operators'and warfighters'needs. Necessary extensions to DDMS specifications will be made to support detection of complex events. The system will be designed using open architecture in which system components will be implemented as services allowing ease of integration, scalability and platform independent operations.
