SOCET GXP Video Analysis capabilities
Real-time situational awareness for active operations and historical data analysis
The SOCET GXP® Video Analysis tool reads and displays live video feeds or saved video files from airborne sensors. It uses the image metadata and a video sensor model to establish accurate geopositioning for detailed analysis and intelligence reporting.
BAE Systems developed the Video Analysis capability to give analysts a convenient way to work with video and transmit critical data and reports to decision-makers. The latest innovations in video compression provide remarkable quality from the smallest amount of video data. Analysts see crisp, clear, high-definition video in much smaller files, saving bandwidth and storage costs.
The user-friendly interface has a customizable toolbar with standard video controls for play, pause, stop, fast-forward, reverse and frame-by-frame. Advanced controls are provided for slow-motion or frame-by-frame metadata search and review, and video bookmarks are used for playback and analysis. Image enhancements can be applied on-the-fly for brightness, contrast, saturation, hue, sharpness, smoothing, and edge detection. Additional object-tracking tools manage real-time coordinates, speed, and bearing.
Video metadata can be viewed graphically or in text format, with a heads-up display (HUD) superimposed on the video. With a single click, users capture still frames into the SOCET GXP Multiport™ analysis window. SOCET GXP provides geopositioning to allow fusion with other geospatial data types such as terrain, features, and other images. All functionality available for images can be applied to video still frames in SOCET GXP.
The Video Analysis tool is integrated with Google Earth™ to provide sensor position, field of view, and situational awareness for video footprints.
The HUD display offers graphics and text information over the video, such as: AV heading and position; target location and width (height above target); slant range; sensor type, bearing, and elevation; date and time; compass rose; pitch; fuel level; and weapon load.
