Imagery Exploitation is an area of considerable importance for the Intelligence community. Collection capabilities continue to deliver larger and more accurate data across modalities while having significant impacts throughout the image chain. Additionally, multi- and hyper-spectral data sources will heavily burden processing, storage, exploitation, and dissemination architectures. This paper addresses three specific areas of concern: The need to exploit this large amount of imagery, in a timely manner, to support Intelligence Objectives The need to quickly and accurately integrate geospatial information with intelligence information Management and maintenance of the community's corporate history regarding critical targets and entities This paper presents the Target Exploitation Analysis and Management System (TEAMS), a shared analyst's softcopy exploitation environment that improves analysis and exploitation performance of multi-modal imagery in a collaborative, Work Group environment. TEAMS integrate Information Management technologies with Knowledge Management tools to capture and correlate the knowledge that exists within a group. Object-based data stores and a contextually driven ontology capture issues specific to the workgroup. This approach is successful because it focuses on specific exploitation tasks within a work-group environment, reducing workloads to the mission-applicable information while maintaining an interface to the entire intelligence community.
