dc.description.abstractThe Marine Corps has a capability gap in its inability to exploit full motion video in real time. Currently, Marines are unable to rectify, orthorectify, and georectify live video streams, which would allow for real-time geolocation coordinate extraction. MITRE Corporation’s Full Motion Video Optical Navigation Exploitation (FMV-ONE) is a platform agnostic software solution capable of processing Motion Imagery Standards Board-compliant video streams. Using structure from motion theory, video is processed through computer vision-informed algorithms, and users are able to generate precision coordinates without the need for Controlled Image Base (CIB) or Digital Point Positioning Database (DPPDB) references. Additional capabilities include a multi-aspect video viewer, reference imagery generation and Cursor on Target export, and live video rewind. After examining the capabilities of FMV-ONE, I believe that the Marine Corps’ planned implementation within the geospatial intelligence community leaves the true potential of the software untapped. The underlying mathematical engine has capability expansion potential that can provide benefits across the functional areas of the Marine Corps, most importantly, to operations, fires, and aviation support. FMV-ONE’s toolsets need to be expanded, and the software needs to be fielded to additional communities beyond the intelligence enterprise.en_US
