The principal objective of this effort is to establish a functional copy of the SRI Image Understanding IU Testbed system of hardware and software at the U. S. Army Engineer Topographic Laboratories ETL Research Institute at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. Initial tasks included advising on the preparation of the ETL site for the Testbed system installation, purchasing the required hardware and arranging for installation at ETL, and arranging for availability of Testbed software systems. Recent major tasks included assisting with several phases of hardware installation and testing, installing Testbed software systems, and developing support software to enhance the systems overall capabilities of the system. The ETL system is now functional as a node on the DDN MILNET network and interacts with a Symbolics Lisp Machine over a Chaosnet Ethernet network. The main beneficial result of this effort is the transfer to ETL of a large body of research technology carried out by SRI and numerous other contributors to the DARPA Image Understanding research program.
