Abstract:

This IC addresses the Joint Capabilities Area JCA for Battle Space Awareness. Battle Space Awareness is the knowledge and understanding of the environment, factors, and conditions of the environment of an operational area, including the status of friendly and adversary forces, neutrals and noncombatants and weather and terrain, to enable timely, relevant, comprehensive and accurate assessments, in order to successfully apply combat power, protect the force and complete the mission. A Situational Awareness SA Product is a concise, transportable summary of the state of friendly and enemy elements conveyed through information such as Full-Motion Video FMV, imagery, or other data that can contribute to the development of Situational Awareness either locally or at some distant node. Such products provide the Situational Awareness that enables the human perception of the elements of the operational environment in the context of forces, space and time, the comprehension of their meaning, and the projection of their status in the near future. Motion Imagery is defined as imagery a likeness or representation of any natural or man-made feature or related object or activity utilizing sequential or continuous streams of images that enable observation of the dynamic, temporal, behavior of objects within the scene. Motion Imagery temporal rates, nominally expressed in frames per second, must be sufficient to characterize the desired dynamic phenomena. Motion Imagery is defined as nominally beginning at frame rates of 1 Hz 1 frame per second or higher within a common field of regard. FMV is motion imagery. This IC addresses the interoperability of imagery from an unmanned systems sensor to a ground control station or remote video terminal. Currently, the Geospatial Intelligence exploitation of that motion imagery is performed on an individual frame using MIL-STD-2500C National Imagery Transmission Format, Version 2.1 and a frame capture tool.
