Managing the data that UAS generate is a colossal problem that has been growing for years at a pace the available solutions are unable to match. Full motion video (FMV) is the most obvious example of this as camera resolutions, the number of UAVs in the air over combat zones and the time they spend airborne have grown dramatically.
This has presented operators with the unenviable task of staring for hours at boring patches of desert, for example, waiting for something significant to happen so they can extract and pass on nuggets of actionable information from interminable periods of inaction. It also strains data link bandwidth, processing resources and storage capacity all along the chain.
