The ability to identify objects of interest and emerging threats around a vehicle in real time or by a warfighter looking for threats in a large field of view is currently severely hampered by the limitations of current algorithms and processing platforms. There have been recent advances in several technology areas, which if combined intelligently could solve this hard problem in enhancing situational awareness cost effectively. This report looks at the issues surrounding automated surveillance systems specifically looking at enhanced binoculars and convoy vehicle automated protection systems.
