Automated analysis of wide area motion imagery (WAMI) can significantly reduce the effort required for converting data into reliable decisions. We register consecutive WAMI frames and use false-color frame comparisons to enhance the visual detection of possible subjects in the imagery. The large number of WAMI detections produces the need for a prioritization of detections for further inspection. We create a priority queue of detections for automated revisit with smaller field-ofview assets based on the locations of the movers as well as the probability of the detection. This automated queue works within an operator’s preset prioritizations but also allows the flexibility to dynamically respond to new events as well as incorporating additional information into the surveillance tasking.
