What can UAV analysts learn from 'Jersey Shore'?

The Air Force might soon be adopting practices used by reality television producers to efficiently manage the large volume of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance data gathered from unmanned aircraft sensors and cameras, reports Military.com.

In response to a request from the military service, RAND's Project Air Force Team recommended the Air Force adopt some of reality television’s production practices; for example, operating in “control rooms” and building massive databases to store motion and still imagery to easily replay in the future, the story said.

In a report titled, “The Future of Air Force Motion Imagery Exploitation,” the researchers also recommended the service depend less on chat rooms to communicate and instead organize intelligence teams to analyze video by region, not by aircraft, the story said.
