Video Image Geolocation Research Program

ObjectVideo : 24 July, 2012  (Sponsored Features)
ObjectVideo has been contracted to develop video analytics technology for providing geolocation information based on outdoor video images
Video Image Geolocation Research Program
ObjectVideo has been awarded a $15.6 million contract by the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA), Incisive Analysis Office to develop a technology that, with the aid of an analyst, can geolocate an outdoor image or video from anywhere on the land surface of the world, via the use of publicly-available information. Phase 1 of the effort is expected to be completed by June 2014. ObjectVideo is one of four offerors selected to participate in this program.

The Finder Program aims to build on existing research systems to develop technology that augments the analyst’s abilities to address the geolocation task. Technical innovations of the system will include the integration of analysts’ abilities and automated geolocation technologies to solve geolocation problems; the fusion of diverse, publicly-available, but often imperfect data sources; and expansion of current automated geolocation technologies to work more efficiently and accurately over all terrains and large search areas.

If successful, Finder system will deliver a rigorously-tested technology solution for image and video geolocation tasks in any outdoor terrestrial location.

“We are pleased to be awarded this important contract to help address the challenges analysts face geolocating images and videos of interest,” said Raul Fernandez, chairman and CEO of ObjectVideo. “Our R&D Services group is made up more than 30 of the top international experts in the field of computer vision, so they are well qualified to take on this work.”
