Overhead persistent surveillance systems are becoming more capable at acquiring wide-field image sequences for long time-spans. The need to exploit this data is becoming ever greater. The ability to track a single vehicle of interest or to track all the observable vehicles, which may number in the thousands, over large, cluttered regions while they persist in the imagery either in real-time or quickly on-demand is very desirable. With this ability we can begin to answer a number of interesting… 
Spectrally assisted target tracking
The results show the feasibility of using a hyper spectral sensor to assist a multi target tracking sensor by providing target recognition for reacquisition.
Interactive target tracking for persistent wide-area surveillance
This work developed an algorithm that overcomes challenges in tracking targets in persistent aerial surveillance and demonstrated it on data obtained from a wide-area imaging platform.

An object tracking algorithm that includes moving object estimation, target modeling, and target matching three-step processing is presented that has been tested using a set of multi-angular sequence images acquired by the WorldView-2 satellite.
Robust Object Tracking for Resource-Limited Hardware Systems
Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed tracking system can effectively tackle the difficulties caused by LFR, and an integral image of model parameters is constructed which provides a look-up table for evaluation, and this greatly reduces the computational load.
The results show that the proposed mean shift algorithm based enhanced target tracking system for high resolution satellite imagery gives relatively better performance than the other tracking algorithms used in satellite imagery.
Visualization of Automated and Manual Trajectories in Wide-Area Motion Imagery
This work describes an interactive visualization system that supports very large gig pixel per frame video, facilitates rapid, intuitive monitoring and analysis of tracking algorithm execution, provides visual methods for the inter comparison of very long manual tracks with multi segmented automatic tracker outputs, and a flexible KOLAM Tracking Simulator middleware.
KOLAM: a cross-platform architecture for scalable visualization and tracking in wide-area imagery
This paper focuses on the use of KOLAM for target tracking in high-resolution, high throughput wide format video also known as wide-area motion imagery (WAMI), and develops a supervised tracking and visualization tool that allows analysts to digitally tag multiple targets, quickly review and correct tracking results and apply geospatial visual analytic tools on the generated trajectories.
Intelligence Automation Using WAMI for Counterinsurgency Applications
By shifting the focus to information extraction, analysts can be provided with the tools to extract intelligence for COIN/CT applications and the parallel processing architecture provided by modern GPGPU technology is instrumental in achieving real-time availability and a scalable data throughput.
Erratum to: A Robust Tracking System for Low Frame Rate Video
This paper presents a meta-modelling system that automates the very labor-intensive and therefore time-heavy and expensive and therefore expensive process of manually calculating the value of a response in a discrete-time system.
A Sensitivity Analysis (and Practitioners’ Guide to) of DeepSORT for Low Frame Rate Video
A sensitivity analysis of DeepSORT is conducted to understand the impact of hyperparameter and identify crucial choices for DeepSort in LFR-MOT and present practical recommendations based on the extensive empirical study.

This work builds upon an earlier report, where now the algorithm has been modified for improved performance and has been substantially improved to handle much larger datasets in a much shorter time.
Digital image warping
This book is intended to be a practical guide for eclectic scientists and engineers who find themselves in need of implementing warping algorithms and comprehending the underlying concepts.

GPU-accelerated hierarchical dense correspondence for real-time aerial video processing
This paper presents a hierarchical dense correspondence algorithm designed for implementation on graphics processing units (GPUs), suitable for use when there are uncor-rected nonlinear lens distortions, and a framework for using this dense correspondence to implement local mosaicking, super-resolution enhancement, and mover detection.
