Bandwidth compression schemes have found useful application in preventing the jamming of transmitted information. Such data reduction methods are particularly needed in the case of RPV imagery transmission. The Night Vision & Electro-Optics Laboratory has initiated funding of separate studies to access the feasibility of obtaining 1000 to 1 and 10,000 to 1 compression ratios. The achievement of such ratios necessitates a considerable degree of local intelligence in which specially selected scene information only, is transmitted. The 1000 to 1 concept involves sending with fidelity, just such information that is deemed to be of probable value to the RPV mission. In the case of 10,000 to 1 ratio the image is segmented, classified and only coordinates and image descriptors are transmitted.
