The ACVT has been successful in attracting a Capability and Technology Demonstrator (CTD) Program award from the Federal Government and DSTO.

The award supports the development of a technology demonstrator based on ACVT’s existing capabilities in in content-based image retrieval.  Content-based image retrieval allows large image databases to be searched on the basis of the images themselves.   It means that you can use images to search for images.  If you have a picture of what you’re looking for, you can retrieve all of the similar images out of the database.

The effect of the capability is that it allows a small number of people to search a vast database of images for the content they are interested.  The alternative is really just that they look at random images hoping to find something.

There’s a story about it in the Australian.
