Research Institution
Mosaic ATM proposes to develop an Automated Geopositional Feature-on-Video Overlay Service (AFOS) that provides the capability to accurately superimpose (layer) geospatial information on top of live aerial video feeds. System execution will employ Detail and Resource Throttling (DaRT) to achieve high overlay configurability and adaptation of processing to accommodate changing optical / viewing conditions and resource availability within a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) environment. We compute and refine the pose of an optical sensor using a multi-rate iterated filter whose measurements are dynamically configured online as a function of scene geometry, video quality, and processing residuals. These capabilities enable the AFOS system to achieve a high-degree of fully-automated performance, delivering persistent quality of service to the human operator across a spectrum of environmental conditions.
