Paper Abstract

This paper describes a family of image management systems which require massive archival capabilities. The Multimodal Acquisition, Archive and Review System needs a storage media which can be preserved for legislated time periods of five to ten years, with storage for childrens cases up to 21 years. The Multisensor Acquistion and Processing System (MAPS), which archives Landsat images and the Multimodality Image Management and Enhancement System (MIMES) for image management, processing and archiving require the ability to purge unwanted images and replace them with updated images. Seismic exploration image slice management and astronomic image management also require purging. As a result, the functionality will be dealt with briefly to demonstrate the broad application of the archiving media. The acquisition of images and the utilization of the end result of the processing are differentiating. The archiving needs they hold in common, as well as the subtle differences, will be emphasized. These aspects are: interfaces to network busses and erasable/non-erasable media needs.. The role of interfacing to networks which are highspeed (13-28 Megabytes), those which have standard protocols and moderate speed (Ethernet) and those which support telecommunication will be presented. Data rates and the mediation of double buffering on the interface are addressed. Known error rates for the optical digital data disk and the error correction to the required accuracy for the application will also be discussed.
