Abstract
DRDC Valcartier has developed a multi-sensor surveillance system composed of an active imaging system (the Airborne Laser-Based Enhanced Detection and Observation System (ALBEDOS)) and a thermal Infrared (IR) imaging system. This system is called the Enhanced Low-light level Visible and Infrared Surveillance System (ELVISS). The purpose of the system is to enhance surveillance capability at night and under degraded weather conditions especially for Search and Rescue (SAR) operations. Throughout the development process, DRDC Toronto was responsible for the design of the Operator-Machine Interface (OMI) for ELVISS. This report summarizes the development of the OMI carried out under Work Unit 13da22, Operator Machine Interface (OMI) for ELVISS. The emphasis is on ELVISS’ current state and includes recommendations for research and development that would further enhance the ability of the system to support SAR operations.
