Abstract:

The DARPA Airborne Video Surveillance AVS program was established to develop and promote technologies to make airborne video more useful, providing capabilities that achieve a UAV force multiplier. Harris contributed to that goal with the development of processing solutions which permit precision video georegistration of streaming video data. The objective of this video georegistration technology development is to add operational value to video surveillance data by 1 automatically relating mission video imagery to precision controlled reference imagery to achieve metric-level targeting accuracy in near real time, and 2 producing video products and targeting readouts from streaming video data in support of time critical targeting and command and control tasks. Our PVR Precision Video Registration solution substantially alters the current mission model for video interpretation by creating timely, geospatially corrected tactical imagery ready for analysis and exploitation.
