  • Pursuer (CAC Required), developed by AFRL sensors scientists, is a graphical user interface (GUI) capable of assimilating wide-area motion imagery, ground-based sensor data, and narrow-field-of-view sensor overlays for review in one composite display composed of multisensor imagery and Dubbed Pursuer, the technology builds upon the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) World Wind Java, a software engine that overlays NASA and US Geological Survey satellite imagery, aerial photography, topographic maps, and publicly available geographical information system associated metadata. data on three-dimensional models of earth and other planets. Pursuer provides a time model that enables users to step through a collection of sensor data in a “TiVo-like” (i.e., digital-video-recording-type) capacity. The technology also incorporates a variety of additional tools—such as frame-to-frame stabilization, brightness/contrast adjustment, user markup annotation, screen capture, distance calculator, manual tracking, and movie creation—enabling users to exploit the captured sensor data to the fullest possible extent. The Pursuer project is accessible via forge.mil.
