Abstract : The Management Information and Downloader Interface System (MIDIS) is a program to develop the foundation for an advanced sensor test facility for the U.S. Army Center for Night Vision and Electro-Optics (CNVEO). MIDIS will perform a variety of tasks related to the acquisition, manipulation, and animation of image data collected from a variety of sensors with differing formats and media. In addition, MIDIS will collect, manage, and make available ground truth information from high bit rate (HBR) digital tapes formatted to the Advanced Target Recognizer Working Group (ATRWG) specification of February 1985. The MIDIS functions are: 1) download to computer disk image data ; 2) collect and catalog ground-truth data from HBR tapes; 3) manipulate image data; 4) manage image data catalog (ground truth); and 5) upload images on computer disk.
