TMM, Inc. Enters Joint ISR Research Program With Raytheon Company for TMMI's TRUDEF Video Compression Technology

June 3, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- TMM, Inc. (PINKSHEETS:TMMI) ("TMMI") or (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a joint research program with Raytheon Company to test the TRUDEF™ video compression technology owned by TMMI for a variety of applications in the Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance sector. Both companies have committed resources to the venture with the goal of finding solutions to reduce bandwidth costs and improve image quality.

"This an exciting milestone for TMMI," said Gerard V. Cavanaugh, TMMI's CEO, "We have been working closely with Raytheon over the past year so that we can develop custom engineering solutions using TRUDEF video compression as a key component to improve the user experience and streamline integration into their customer's ecosystem. It's the next step in building a strong relationship."

As TMMI researchers continue to improve the TRUDEF fractal compression engine, the TRUDEF team is also developing customizable image processing solutions for scientific, industrial and military clients. The TMM engineering team has completed demonstrable prototypes of object tracking, real-time image magnification, super resolution and image enhancement filters built on top of the compression engine. These technologies provide client specific applications that combine state-of-the-art compression technology with advanced image processing tools.

This is particularly useful in scientific and surveillance applications. The object-tracking prototype allows a user to select a single object or multiple objects in a source video, and track visually dynamic or "evolving" targets. These "object images" can then be resolution enhanced using super-resolution. Additionally, the research team has added filters that significantly improve the visual clarity of otherwise challenging source video in real time.

The prototypes the team has developed are in response to the needs of a complex video imaging market driven primarily by the Sports, Exploration, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance communities. These capabilities are clearly applicable to a number of scientific and industrial sectors as well. Interested parties are invited to contact us for further information and demonstrations.
