Paper Abstract

The transportable Digital Enhancement Database (DEDS) System stores and processes image data in a fully self-contained system. It accepts imagery from a variety of sources such as video tape, video maps, or digital/CCD camera. It includes generalized and customized image processing and manipulation functions. It also provides for special processing to enhance imagery from selected sensors. Imagery can be annotated and stored on magnetic disk (on line) or on optical disk for archiving, storage, and retrieval. Data relating to this imagery is stored in a database and is accessible for update or review. The database drives the selection of imagery for retrieval. A scheme for selecting images based upon desired characteristics of the frames and subsequent selection of specific images visually from a "visual index" has been implemented. A Mapping Subsystem is included in the DEDS. A wide variety of maps are available on an analog video disk and can be retrieved, annotated, and stored with embedded annotation along with other acquired imagery or within its own subsystem. The system has been designed with growth as a major parameter. Incorporation into much large scale systems such as those for real-time mission planning and control is envisioned.
