Paper Abstract

The Strategic Computing Object-directed Reconnaissance Parallel-processing Image Understanding System (SCORPIUS) program was successfully completed in September 1990. Initiated in 1985, SCORPIUS was a research program that combined emerging technologies from DARPA's Image Understanding (IU) and Computer Architecture programs in a real world application, the automated exploitation of aerial imagery. Image exploitation is the process of extracting intelligence from image data. The quantity and quality of the products from various sensor systems are out-pacing the improvements in exploitation systems. SCORPIUS has demonstrated the concept that the model-based vision approach can address this imbalance.
