Paper Abstract

The ever expanding uses of remote sensing continue to drive requirements in industry, Government, and the military for an imagery data base and processing system that provides timely, flexible support to imagery analysts and yet is simple to use. This paper describes a system called the Digital Enhancement Data Base System (DEDS) that allows real-time image processing, storage, display, and enhancement of multisensor imagery, charts, and textual data. It is an imagery analyst's interactive "shoe box" that can replace hundreds of pounds of hardcopy imagery and collateral information by storing that data in digital, video, and analog forms. The system contains a graphics package that allows annotation of the data to be stored. A split-screen display feature allows side-by-side comparison of new imagery or data with collateral information retrieved from the data base. Futhermore, information in the data base can be recalled and distributed via local wide-area communications networks. The complete system is designed to operate within ruggedized, transportable cases.
