Paper Abstract

The current state of technology limits the spectral sensitivity and field of view of any single sensor. To compensate for this limitation, singular sensors are configured in groupings of varying sensor types. In systems utilizing multiple sensors, operators can become overwhelmed with data. The effectiveness of these new multi-sensor systems requires the construction of an environment that optimizes the delivery of maximum intelligence to the operator so as to provide as much information about the environment as possible. GE Fanuc / Octec has developed such an environment; a panoramic, near-immersive visualization tool that is intuitive to use and seamlessly integrates multiple sensors into natural view with important intelligence information retained and enhanced. We will discuss methods to generate and inject metadata such as automatic detection and tracking of possible threats and the fusing of multi-spectral streams into this environment significantly raising the level of situational awareness for the operator.
