NEMESIS program to provide actionable intelligence

MALIBU, Calif. HRL Laboratories, LLC, have completed live demonstrations of their Neurmorphic Eye In the Sky (NEMESIS) program, a drone-based system designed to analyze situational awareness and provide actionable intelligence in real time.

NEMESIS is a bioinspired system of video processing that is intended to emulate the human vision system from multi-modal sensor data, providing tactical decisions and actionable intelligence to warfighters on the ground as action is happening.

For the field demonstrations, two primary tests were conducted. The first was activity recognition. This test included real-time object detection, classification, and tracking of people, vehicles, or packages. NEMESIS also indicated single or group human behaviors.

The second test involved recognizing mission phases such as unit position, building entry, and regrouping phases. NEMESIS detected mission anomalies such as incorrect individual positions, incorrect unit positions, and incomplete regroupings and provided explanation of such mission anomalies via human-understandable text.
