Government and military users across the spectrum of strategic and tactical roles and missions are clamoring for more and better means to collect, analyze, exploit and share full motion video. And while the deployment of a fleet of unmanned systems has led to a significant increase in the amount of video that can be captured, the means to exploit that video for near-real time analysis and dissemination lags behind. Multiple, competing video formats, interoperability challenges with legacy ISR stovepipes, the somewhat limited capabilities of current data tagging and metadata tools, and problems associated with already-strained, bandwidth-constricted ISR networks – all these issues will need to be dealt with if FMV capabilities are to be fully realized.
This outstanding conference brings together the key players and organizations in the FMV community. They will examine the latest OSD, Service and Intelligence community ISR and FMV needs, initiatives, plans and challenges.
-How can advances in FMV technology contribute to resolving Wide Area Persistent Surveillance challenges?
-What is needed to develop an “enterprise-wide” motion imagery/FMV architecture?
-What are the latest tools and techniques for video analysis and exploitation? What next-generation tools are on the drawing board?
-What are the operational challenges and lessons learned? How will future plans, requirements and acquisitions be impacted?
-What FMV/Motion Imagery Standards are emerging?
-How does FMV impact the Big Data Challenge?
