Abstract : Tne Environmental Research Institute of Michigan (ERIM) successfully designed, configured, implemented, documented, and tested a Geocoded Imagery Production System (GIPS) for the 480th Intelligence Group (IG), Langley Air Force Base, Virginia. The system is composed of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware components, COTS software packages, and nondevelopmental software packages designed to provide the production environment and tracking tools necessary to process and deliver ARC Digital Raster Imagery (ADRI) products. The system generates products compliant with the Broad Area ADRI Product Specification and the ADRI Format Specification, each dated 24 July 1992. The U.S. Air force established the ADRI program to provide the utility of an unclassified, broad area, current database of imagery to support mission planning. The ADRI image databases are used in mission planning and theater battle management systems as an image backdrop to assist mission profile development, a means to provide geopositioning information for navigation and target area acquisition, and a real-world scene for perspective view generation and mission preview. The 480th IG has the responsibility for the production of ADRI for the Air Combat Command.
