Optimizing Mission Display Readability & Performance By Kevin Rooney
Modern airborne video surveillance systems enable mission teams to search for objects of interest and observe unfolding events (either overtly or covertly) while recording and reporting what’s being observed. Improvements to a helicopter’s video surveillance system can significantly improve mission effectiveness. Ways to improve the system include:
⦿ Making it more intuitive, and thereby easier to use. ⦿ Improving the stability of the camera source and the clarity of the picture. ⦿ Merging electro-optical (EO) and infrared (IR) video data.
