In this paper, we present an intelligent image compression system whereby regions of interest (ROI) and background information are coded independently of each other. We apply less compression (more bits) to regions of interest (targets), and more compression (fewer bits) to background data. This methodology preserves relevant features of targets for further analysis, and preserves the background only to the extent of providing contextual information. The resulting system dramatically reduces the bandwidth/storage requirements of the digital imagery, while preserving the target-specific utility of the imagery.
