Lockheed Martin's Intelligent Library System (ILS)TM imagery management solution was originally developed for users and distributors of Earth imagery emanating from commercial remote sensing satellites or aircraft. The product is a total hardware and software solution comprised of two main components: SmartArchiverTM digital asset management system and SmartAnalystTM imagery exploration tools. While investigating the latest technologies and developing Intelligent Library System (ILS)TM as a state-of-the-art system, we realized SmartArchiver systems offered robust functionality not available elsewhere for handling large medical imagery files. The SmartArchiver system's features answer the following needs of medical imagery handling: smooth handling of large individual imagery files; easy access to specific imagery or types of imagery; cost-effective storage of historical data and protection of imagery over time; ability to grow an archive to thousands of terabytes; distribution from a central archive to multiple viewing sites; varying levels of resolutions requirements at the viewing stations; strict multi-level security adherence; and automated workflow management. In this paper we detail the features of the system and how they apply to medical imagery management. We also describe how a medical application can be served by the SmartArchiver asset management system.
