Ground image exploitation system for airborne surveillance

Ground image exploitation system for airborne surveillance

Abstract
The operational design of Image exploitation system to process real time video and flight data acquired by an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle is presented. The system comprises of image processing tasks along with image processing applications embedded on vision processor board.  Image exploitation makes use of image processing algorithms for information extraction using selective and adaptive techniques such as image enhancements, filtering, automatic target tracking, and computation of geo-reference location of target. The system operates in real time mode to display mission parameters on a multi display system.  The results indicated the system is qualified to be used for surveillance applications. A sample set of the results are presented.

Excerpts from the Paper
Image exploitation is a process carried out by acquisition and processing of sensory information of a scene or targets for surveillance applications .This process involves processing large volume of image data acquired by multi sensor such as optical, infrared and radar data. For Information extraction and quick analysis the image data has to be processed using fast   computational image processing algorithms and efficient embedded processor. This involves development of automated image exploitation  tools such as selective and adaptive image enhancements ,filtering ,boundary detection of targets, feature extraction ,target acquisition and tracking , identifying geo location of the target, Zooming ,target area measurements, etc. The results of processing are stored in a mission data base for further analysis and interpretation by decision makers.
