Abstract
ABSTRACT: Toyon Research Corporation proposes to provide software for automated detection and tracking of targets in standard and large-format video. Toyon will provide four releases of software libraries to AFRL and will assist in the integration of software libraries into the AFRL framework for Government Algorithms for Tracking Exploitation Research (GATER). Toyon will provide modules for real-time camera motion compensation, motion-based detection in the presence of significant parallax, feature-based detection of small, possibly partially occluded targets, and improved tracking in a track-before-detect framework. BENEFIT: Algorithms for improved detection of targets of interest from airborne platforms will greatly aid the warfighter in the difficult task of video analysis, especially for large-format sensors. Toyon also addresses the need for modular software components that can be plugged into a video analytics framework, and will facilitate evaluation of multiple algorithms in the GATER framework.
