Rep. Moran closely follows forward-thinking technologies and how they impact US warfighters on the ground. I told him about a current UAV project of ours that leverages ObjectVideo software to retrieve, manage, analyze and archive the overwhelming amounts of video data collected daily across the world from the hundreds, perhaps more, UAVs deployed in the Iraq-Afghanistan theatres alone. This government-funded project specifically provides a modern, flexible archival capability to manage multiple terabytes of data and allow complex, rapid queries focusing on patterns of interest for intelligence professionals – all on-demand.
OV has a number of research projects ongoing with various government agencies which provide the scientific basis for much of the functionality that ultimately appears in our commercial products. By supporting ObjectVideo’s R&D efforts, Rep. Moran is not only making life easier and safer for America’s military, he’s contributing to making OV software more robust, flexible and intelligent.
