Stare Server 1000 provides a number of functions for both Falcon and Cheetah Stare sites. It consists of a server and an optional storage system.  Both of them are enclosed in a 19 in cabinet.

The Server performs the functions of serving tiles for the attached Stare Stations. It also provides the function of being the head node for the storage system. It contains solid state storage for 14 days worth of imagery.  It also provides Processing, Exploitation and Dissemination (PED) services for the overall system.  Some of the processing includes ortho-rectification, detections and track generation.

The Stare Store provides up to 24 Terabytes of data. Which is equivalent of 3 months of imagery and meta data storage. The amount of storage can be changed per application and user needs.


The video analytics learn motion patterns as the data becomes available and adapts the models to new data. The real-time anomaly detection algorithms alert analysts to suspicious behaviors. The probabilistic models adaptively learn the spatial, temporal, and kinematic behaviors of moving objects. This reduces the burden on the analyst by automatically learning models and providing alerts to aid in refining their investigations.

The video analytics span

1. Detection and Tracking: Automatically detect and track multiple targets in low resolution data across domains.
2. Anomaly Detection: Automatically learns normal patterns of life (PoL) for moving objects from video and alerts analyst to deviations from normalcy (anomalies)
3. Target Development Using Patterns of Life: Isolates targets in FMV and WAMI data to detect suspicious  behaviors by learning PoL of “movers”. Detects anomalies that are inconsistent with the expected set of learned behaviors for the entire scene and provides alerts on suspicious behaviors in both terrestrial and maritime domains.
