The current proliferation of Unmanned Aircraft Systems provides an increasing amount of full-motion video (FMV) that, among other things, encodes geospatial intelligence. But the FMV is rarely converted into useful products, thus the intel potential is wasted. We have developed four concept demonstrations of methods to convert FMV into more immediately useful products, including: more accurate coordinates for objects of interest; timely, geo-registered, orthorectified imagery; conversion of mouse-clicks to object coordinates; and first-person-perspective visualization of graphical control measures. We believe these concepts can convey valuable geospatial intelligence to the tactical user.
