Intelligence Processing
Programs and Systems

Processing systems receive, convert, and correlate information into a form usable as combat information or intelligence. These processors are found at all echelons of the intelligence architecture, and include both primary processing and secondary exploitation systems. In some architectures, such as USIS 2000, the term processing is limited to those functions needed to convert imagery data into a scene contiguous pixel format. All other operations with the pixels are considered image analysis. Applications to accomplish image analysis are distributed among the exploitation elements. Systems and programs listed here include both processing and exploitation elements.
