Abstract

During combat a soldier may incur treatable injuries beyond the expertise of the combat medic. Addressing this by deploying more knowledgeable Medical Officers per-squad could be life-saving and significantly improve battlefield injury recovery. However, limited resources often prevent deployment of such expertise per-squad. During our Phase I RACC development, Neya Systems has successfully demonstrated the feasibility of a novel solution to this very problem: deployment of a Medical Officers expertise without deploying the Medical Officer. In Phase II, we are providing robust feature tracking in the presence of local scene motion, including off-camera motion and full scene changes; extending Phase I EUD feature tracking implementation to include cloud-based processing and service architecture to enable offloading of complex processing; developing a browser-based interface tool suite for static and dynamic annotation design, and placement, synchronized across the RACC network; and extending the UCS System Architecture to include RACC data structures and fully integrate with Neyas existing cloud-based infrastructure.
