Digital Image Processing: Experiences in the Gulf War

by Gerald E. Galloway, Jr., U.S. Military Acad, West Point, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Digital Image Processing: Techniques and Applications in Civil Engineering


During the 1990-91 conflict in Southwest Asia between Iraq and coalition forces operating with US Armed Forces, the utility of products developed from digital imagery and digital terrain data became obvious. The success of the coalition forces, in part, related to their ability to see the battlefield on which they were to fight. This success with use of digital products highlighted problems with system compatibility, transmission of information, and system standards. The future for enhancement and use of digital products is bright and will provide logical carry-overs into the civilian engineering world.
