SAN DIEGO, 26 May 2007. The L-3 Communications Advanced Products & Design segment in San Diego is offering the VideoScout-MC mobile video exploitation and management system with an integrated receiver designed to easily capture and leverage real-time video and metadata from manned or unmanned surveillance and reconnaissance assets.

The VideoScout-MC is a self-contained, portable laptop capable of receiving video and metadata directly from L, S, or C band-based intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) systems, and enables users to view incoming video, as well as archive, annotate, geo-reference, and disseminate relevant, actionable video to others across the battle space.

Accessible from within VideoScout-MC, warfighters can synchronize metadata and video with FalconView maps to create geo-location smart video. Video and metadata can be paused, zoomed, annotated and recorded in real-time to improve situational awareness. Video and metadata are also stored and indexed automatically for subsequent search and retrieval.

By highlighting a specific area on a map, VideoScout enables mobile and forward personnel to quickly identify locations of interest and automatically find and display all instances of video for the requested locations. Corresponding latitude/longitude, date/time, and annotations are also displayed, providing geo-referenced video and map information in a single screen format.

VideoScout's flexibility, portability, and interoperability accommodate other third-party applications, providing field personnel with the ability to use VideoScout as a remote video exploitation terminal. VideoScout-MC includes video exploitation and management software in a rugged, mobile laptop computer integrated with an L/S or L/C band receiver, antenna, and cables.
