New System Empowers Analysts With Geo-Enabled Fusion of Full Motion Video, Wide Area Persistent Surveillance, and Sensor Data in Near-Real-TimeMCLEAN, Va., Nov. 1, 2010 — (PRNewswire) — Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) (NYSE: SAI) announced today it has launched the Advanced Intelligence Multimedia Exploitation Suite (AIMES). The new motion imagery exploitation system enables intelligence analysts to fuse, exploit and report on motion imagery data from a full range of sources. AIMES is a new product release in the SAIC Advanced Analytics Application line of tools, which are designed to support the geospatial visualization and fusion of motion imagery data with other geospatial and spatial data sources.
AIMES is a new technology developed through internal research and development efforts that builds on SAIC's Video Processing Capability (VPC) line of products, and was designed closely with user cooperation throughout the development process. It integrates the capabilities of SAIC's widely used VPC with new advanced analytic functions, designed into an intuitive graphical user interface. AIMES helps break down single-source stovepipes to enable near-real-time and forensic fusion of full motion video, all-source intelligence information, as well as synchronized visualization of raw data, chat and processed intelligence.
"AIMES is a great example of where SAIC's internal research and development is aligned with ISR trends, and where we can offer solutions to emerging defense requirements," said John Thomas, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.
In addition to addressing challenges associated with full motion video (FMV) and wide area exploitation, AIMES is poised to change the nature of FMV processing, exploitation and dissemination management through its included task management function. This capability allows for real-time enterprise task changes at FMV PED (processing, exploitation and dissemination) sites.
AIMES offers an open architecture that can adapt to meet the evolving needs of the FMV and geospatial intelligence communities. The AIMES open architecture features the ability to rapidly integrate third party tools, algorithms and services through the use of cloud technologies. This enables the retention of a consistent FMV infrastructure, while keeping pace with the new technologies. AIMES is compatible with Distributed Common Ground Systems services to enable the integration of all-source spatial and geospatial information, and is available in both Windows® (Microsoft Corporation) and Solaris® (Oracle America. Inc.) versions, maximizing user capability to use different and motion intelligence data types.
"We look forward to offering AIMES to intelligence analysts and giving them a significant advantage over adversaries, helping commanders find these adversaries, and protecting our men and women in harm's way," said Thomas.
