Video Detection and Target Classification at 5km
The ability to perform video detection at a very long range, is no small feat. At these ranges, even with thermal sensors, camera stabilization and environmental noise enter into the equation. Given that detection is a difficult task, it is even more problematic to discern what type of object is being viewed. This is often referred to as classification. This video is an example of being able to both detect and to classify targets at a distance of 5km. Video analytics are used to detect both targets, and also to further classify them; the right most target being a dog and the second target, a human. Software based video stabilization has been applied for better operator viewing and for improved detection. The video playback is being shown within the PureActiv metadata video player. A vast amount of data related to the video (i.e metadata), including things like latitude, longitude and elevation, current time, current frame, are included with the video file and “fully signed,” indicating that the video has not been subjected to tampering.
