The article offers information about the future design and features of mobile video surveillance (MVS). In the future, MVS system will have flexible sensor systems that consist of high-resolution multispectral image sensors, built-in machine intelligence of a high order to identify threat target from background objects and peer-to-peer wireless networks to allow swarms of fixed and mobile sensor assets. In addition, MVS systems technology would operate at the individual asset level and the group level. The systems can offer up-to-the-minute information on the battle field situation, the intelligence and training to use the information, and the instant communication to coordinate their actions.
