The exercise demonstrated the value of specialized FMV PED applications to get the most operational utility from tactical UAS and glean useful intelligence from the UAS FMV sensors in a maritime environment.
Irvine, CA (PRWEB) December 04, 2014
2d3’s suite of commercial off-the-shelf PED software – which includes client-side software, TacitView, and media server application, Catalina – provides advanced FMV processing capabilities, from enhancing the image quality of live or archived feeds to providing geospatial coordinates in real-time.
As part of the exercise, 2d3 was tasked with receiving live FMV from the Puma All Environment (AE) unmanned aerial system (UAS) operating from Stiletto and demonstrating capabilities to ingest, archive, and enhance FMV. The analysis included providing situational awareness of the Puma’s location, flight path, and sensor field of regard in a 3D geospatial display, as well as creating a number of sample products from the FMV, including annotated still images and video clips, enhanced imagery, image mosaics, and map chips of the Puma’s location and collection area.
“The exercise demonstrated the value of specialized FMV PED applications to get the most operational utility from tactical UAS and glean useful intelligence from the UAS FMV sensors in a maritime environment,” said Mike Kirschke, Director of Business Development at 2d3 Sensing. “It also brought into focus the importance of standards compliance and interoperability that help facilitate integration into existing workflows and systems.”
Both the Puma and 2d3’s software adhere to the Motion Imagery Standards Profile (MISP) for FMV data format and transmission, which enabled a direct, digital connection between the Puma and 2d3’s PED suite with no loss of data quality or content.
