ROCKVILLE, Md. — Jan. 6, 2019 — Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI), a technology innovation company, announced today that it has been awarded a contract by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) to design a system to automate video quality assessments based on the Video National Imagery Interpretability Rating Scale (VNIIRS) as specified by the Motion Imagery Standards Board (MISB) criteria for video interpretability.
The increasing volumes of motion imagery data makes it infeasible to rely on human analysts alone. IAI will design and implement a system to automate VNIIRS assessments and perform large-scale video interpretability assessments suitable for DoD operations. Initial focus will be on panchromatic electro-optical (EO) video and imagery, eventually extending to infrared (IR) and multi-spectral imagery (MSI).
IAI is a leader in developing AI/ML-based products and customized solutions to address government and industry needs in application areas such as full motion video analytics. In this effort, IAI will leverage its extensive experience in machine vision and deep learning to enable rapid development and validation of the video quality assessment framework.
“IAI is proud to have been selected by the NGA to explore innovative technologies to address technology gaps in computer vision and automated quality assessment,” said Vikram Manikonda, President and CEO of IAI.
IAI is a technology innovation company specializing in providing advanced technology solutions and R&D services to federal agencies and corporations. IAI leverages agile R&D processes, a multi-disciplinary collaborative environment, and a substantial intellectual property portfolio to develop concepts into market-focused products and customer-driven solutions.
