A core tenet of “network centricity” is that shared situational awareness enables collaboration and self-synchronization which in turn enhances decision superiority, and speed of command. Too often though, the variety of systems brought to the fight present disparate means of moving and presenting information. Each system provides a value to the mission, but that value is lost because decision-makers must toggle between systems, creating a disjointed operational view and decaying the timeliness of actionable information.
Image Commander V1.2 is a Windows-based common operational picture (COP) tool for the fusion of disparate static imagery-based sensors using standards-based interfaces. Image Commander V1.2 enables the aggregation and display of multi-source and multi-media data from disparate static imagery sensors and facilitates rapid and effective sharing of information such that those that are conducting military, homeland defense, and law enforcement missions, can “pull” information from ubiquitous standards-based repositories. By aggregating disparate systems into a single cognitive interface, mission teams can mitigate the “information stovepipes” created by having to monitor multiple discrete systems and displays.>
- Optimized for austere environments: Windows application that runs locally while fetching local or remote images using standard web URLs.
- Simple Sensor Entry: Enter sensor imagery location (static or Windows Media streams) and reference across one or more Image Windows.
- Support for Streaming Video: Sensor pointers can be set for Windows Media streams.
- Static Image Viewing: Image windows may be set for a single image that is re-fetched on a timed interval.
- Image Flippers: Multiple images may be “flipped” and rotated in a single window using a timed interval.
- Secure: Configuration is login and passphrase protected to protect imagery location. At rest data encrypted using AES-256.
- Local or Remote Configurations: Each instance may have it’s own configuration or point to a common configuration on a Mission Server.
- Rapidly Adaptable and Field Configurable: No complex coding required.
