Paper Abstract

Video image exploitation is an increasingly crucial component of battlefield surveillance systems. In order to address the present difficulties pertaining to video exploitation of tactical sensors, DARPA has developed the Airborne Video Surveillance (AVS) program. AVS will utilize Electro-Optical (EO) and Infrared (IR) video imagery similar to that available from current and future Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) systems. The AVS program will include the development, integration, and evaluation of technologies pertaining to precision video registration, multiple target surveillance, and automated activity monitoring into a system capable of real-time UAV video exploitation. When combined with existing EO and IR target recognition algorithms, AVS will provide the Warfighter with a comprehensive video battlespace awareness capability.
