Rapid Forensic Search & Retrieval in Video Archives

Goal is to develop fast algorithms for compression of video data for fast, accurate forensic search and forensics

Relevance to the Homeland Security Enterprise

  • Thousands of unmanned cameras at DHS locations (airports, transit stations, border crossings) generating video for storage
  • Fast algorithms needed to search enormous video archives for desired activities
  • Needs low probability of false alarm, high probability of detection
