Abstract

For troop and military installation protection, modern computer vision methods must be harnessed to enable a comprehensive approach to contextual awareness. In this chapter we present a collection of intelligent video technologies currently under development at the General Electric Global Research Center, which can be applied to this challenging problem. These technologies include: aerial analysis for object detection and tracking, site-wide tracking from networks of fixed video cameras, person detection from moving platforms, biometrics at a distance and facial analysis for the purposes of inferring intent. We hypothesize that a robust approach to troop protection will require the synthesis of all of these technologies into a comprehensive system of systems.
