Abstract:

JPEG2000 is a competitive state-of-the-art new international image coding standard. Imagery is used by the Australian Defence Organisation ADO in many business processes covering strategic, operational and tactical levels. With the increasing international trend for the military to depend on international standards where appropriate, it is likely that JPEG2000 will be used in many military imagery systems and processes. The purpose of this report is to present an introduction to JPEG2000 and its implications for the ADO. The report consists of a background section on the present options for image coding, a technical overview of the new JPEG2000 standard, details of the implications to ADO imagery applications, and a conclusion including possible future research activities. The intended readers for this report are ADO personnel who are responsible for imagery technology.
