This document defines the interfaces and system architecture for a prototype of the Enhanced Low-Light-Level Visible and Infrared Surveillance System (ELVISS) Workstation. The Department of National Defence (DND) has identified requirement to enhance the capabilities of Search and Rescue (SAR) operators to conduct operations at night and under degraded weather conditions. To this end, the Defence Research Establishment Valcartier (DREV) is developing a multi-sensor system composed of an Active Imaging System, the Airborne Laser-Based Enhanced Detection and Observation System (ALBEDOS), and a thermal infrared imaging system. In the initial version of ELVISS, the two sensors will be mounted separately on the aircraft, but the output, of both systems will be controllable and viewable by a common interface. However, no integration of the images from the two sensors is planned at this time. The purpose of this document is to produce a system architecture diagram of the proposed system and to define the system interfaces for the workstation. Data have been collected from the various subsystems and included or referenced in this document.
