Paper Abstract

ITT has developed and demonstrated a real-time airborne data management system that ingests, compresses, stores, and streams imagery and video data from sensors based on users' needs. The data management system was designed to be sensor agnostic, which was demonstrated when ITT quickly integrated several different cameras including an HD video camera, an IR video camera, and large framing cameras. The data is compressed in real-time using ITT's high-speed JPEG 2000 compression core and stored in the airborne unit. The data is then interactively served to users over downlink communication based on the users' requests. This system's capability was demonstrated in several test flights where data was collected from the sensors at 132 megapixels per second (1.5 gigabits per second), compressed, stored, and interactively served as regions of interest to multiple users over a 48 megabit/second communication link. This data management system is currently being incorporated into airborne systems for military and civil applications.
