Paper Abstract

Lockheed Martin's Intelligent Library System (ILS)TM imagery management solution was originally developed for users and distributors of Earth imagery emanating from commercial remote sensing satellites or aircraft. The product is a total hardware and software solution comprised of two main components: SmartArchiverTM digital asset management system and SmartAnalystTM imagery exploration tools. While investigating the latest technologies and developing Intelligent Library System (ILS)TM as a state-of-the-art system, we realized SmartArchiver systems offered robust functionality not available elsewhere for handling large medical imagery files. The SmartArchiver system's features answer the following needs of medical imagery handling: smooth handling of large individual imagery files; easy access to specific imagery or types of imagery; cost-effective storage of historical data and protection of imagery over time; ability to grow an archive to thousands of terabytes; distribution from a central archive to multiple viewing sites; varying levels of resolutions requirements at the viewing stations; strict multi-level security adherence; and automated workflow management. In this paper we detail the features of the system and how they apply to medical imagery management. We also describe how a medical application can be served by the SmartArchiver asset management system.
