Paper Abstract

The volume of digital imagery generated by existing and planned airborne reconnaissance systems requires the use of lossy compression techniques in order to store the real-time imagery on-board or transmit it to a ground station. The government is migrating compression used for reconnaissance applications from proprietary techniques to a national and international standards in order to provide a more seamless image dissemination path. This paper describes the requirements for image compression in advanced tactical reconnaissance system and compares the performance of national and international lossy compression techniques.
