Augmented Reality Overlays for Unmanned and Manned ISR
SmartCam3D and LandForm+ use world map data to fuse overlays onto live or recorded Full Motion Video (FMV). Map data includes global and local data with coverage of the entire earth at medium scale, and other areas at fine scale.
Map overlays include: roads, streets, highways, trails, waterways, national and international borders.
Landmark icons exist for; hospitals, religious facilities, schools, government buildings, fire stations, airports and runways.
The Address Display is a geographic description showing the approximate address of the camera look-point on the ground. This feature allows the sensor operator to provide accurate ground location information.
SmartCam3D imports data from organization intelligence and overlays the data points onto the view in MIL-STD 2525 format.
Sensor Operator Observations
Points of interest may be added during a mission. Sensor operators can mark locations of interest with a flag and a text note. he flag is inserted into the live video, the synthetic view (SmartCam3D only) or both. These markers may be viewed post mission in recorded video.
Sensor Map View
The Map View provides a bird’s eye view of the area of operation. Map View shows the approach of the aircraft to targets.
Picture-in-Picture expands situational awareness through the seamless blending of video and a virtual 3-D landscape. The synthetic terrain mirrors the actual landscape that lies inside as well as outside the sensor field of view. The fusion between the sensor video and the virtual landscape expands the operator’s field of view. The expanded view is the solution to the challenge of the soda straw effect.
