Abstract:

Many modern command and control applications are driven by imagery, and imagery, in general, may originate from diverse geographically distributed sources. A rapid increase in image sizes and processing capabilities has resulted from improved hardware for collection and display. Moreover, techniques for parallel processing are keeping pace with military requirements by harnessing powerful parallel processors to facilitate the analysis of images. In addition, tools for distributed processing are under development that can be used to coordinate the processing effort across a network of parallel processing systems. This paper describes a system that can be used to request image analysis over distributed parallel processing facilities, and integrate the results into command and control systems.
