ObjectVideo to provide surveillance technology for DARPA

ObjectVideo will provide the ground station component for a new class of aircraft-based surveillance systems under a three-year, $1.6 million contract the company has with the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency. The system is being developed under DARPA's Autonomous Real-Time Ground Ubiquitous Surveillance Imaging System program.

The goal of the program is to develop a compact system that combines:
  • A multi-gigapixel, high-resolution sensor;
  • Wide-field optics;
  • An ultra-high-bandwidth, real-time airborne processing system; and
  • A ground station for interactive multi-target designation and tracking.

The processing system can simultaneously and continuously detect and track the presence of thousands of small or large targets over an area covering tens of square miles.

The system's ground station, provided by ObjectVideo, will display, analyze, manipulate and archive the data gathered from the airborne surveillance components. ObjectVideo's intelligent video software suite will be used to send automated alerts and for video forensics.

OjectVideo is based in Reston, Va.
