A Draft By The Motion Imagery Standards Board



A Draft By The Motion Imagery Standards Board

This draft was proposed on April 5 at the DoD conference in Washington , D.C. This is a draft of the standard by the Motion Imagery Standards Board (MISB) and the Infrared Working Group (IRWG). Among those in attendance was Len Yencharis, Editor in Chief of Advanced Imaging magazine.


The Motion Imagery Standards Board (MISB) formulates, reviews and recommends standards for motion imagery, associated metadata, audio and other related systems for use within the Department of Defense/Intelligence Community/National System for Geospatial Intelligence (DoD/IC/NSGI).

With the development of new commercial infrared (IR) sensors and systems technologies and research into the very high spatial and temporal rates there is an increasing capability to meet the needs of the military community for large format, high resolution, high speed IR motion imagery. To effectively leverage the benefits of these emerging technologies within DoD/IC/NSGI, the MISB has established a new working group to address standards for interoperability of new systems.

Purpose And Objectives

The MISB has established the working group, which shall be known as the Infrared Working Group (IRWG). The IRWG is the principal focus within the MISB for all infrared motion imagery. Infrared motion imagery is defined as being in the spectral wavelengths from 1 to 14 µm. standards and Recommended Practices for IR should be similar to those defined by the motion imagery standards levels (MISL) identified in the Motion Imagery Standards Profile 2.3 for the visible spectrum. Collectively, this range of standards shall also be referred herein as ?infrared.? The primary function of the IRWG is to address infrared motion imagery as a key enabling technology The IRWG will report findings and make recommendations for action to the MISB.

The IRWG is chartered with accomplishing the following objectives:

? Advising the MISB of technological trends, research requirements are for various DoD applications, forming technology teams to address specific technological issues, and acting as a coordinating body for DoD research in the fields related to infrared motion imagery.
