Paper Abstract

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Video Verification of Identity (VIVID) program has as its goal the development of the best video tracker ever. This goal is reached through a philosophy of on-the-fly target modeling and the use of three distinct modules: a multiple-target tracker, a confirmatory identification module, and a collateral damage avoidance/moving target detection module. Over the two years of VIVID Phase I, progress appraisal of the ATR-like confirmatory identification module was provided to DARPA by the Air Force Research Laboratory Comprehensive Performance Assessment of Sensor Exploitation (COMPASE) Center through regular evaluations. This document begins with an overview of the VIVID system and its approach to solving the multiple-target tracking problem. A survey of the data collected under VIVID auspices and their use in the evaluation are then described, along with the operating conditions relevant to confirmatory identification. Finally, the evaluation structure is presented in detail, including metrics, experiment design, experiment construction techniques, and support tools.
