Paper Abstract

As the operational requirements placed on airborne surveillance systems increase many in-service systems are approaching the limits of their performance. This problem is compounded by modifications to the systems, such as the change of displays and addition of recording equipment which causes the systems not to be ergonomically and psychophysiologically optimized. Simulation has been conducted and sensor system modelling performed to assess the improvement in operational performance that is attainable by the application of image processing techniques viable for implementation in the real-time airborne environment. Equipments have been developed and operated in-service from which operational reports have confirmed the results of the system modelling. Future upgrades of the processing system will enable the application of such processing to a range of in-service systems as an intermediate, low cost system upgrade.
