Leidos offers a commercial line of video processing products that work individually or together to receive, process, and archive motion imagery (MI) data.

AIMES is a product of years of experience combining advanced analytic functions with an intuitive graphical user interface designed to support motion imagery processing, exploitation, and dissemination (PED). As a suite, AIMES is capable of streamlining motion imagery analysis by managing content across multiple, independent data stores and leveraging metadata richness and mission synchronization.

As an industry leader and program of record for the United States Air Force Distributed Common Ground System (AF DCGS) and United States Army Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS-A), Leidos has years of experience in information exploitation and knowledge management solutions. This knowledge, in conjunction with user requirements, led to the development of the AIMES product line, designed to provide end-to-end high definition video processing for surveillance operations.

Leidos has provided solutions for the intelligence community, the Department of Defense, and international customers in operational environments.


AIMES is the result of internal research and development efforts to improve upon Leidos's previous motion imagery solution, the Video Processing Capability (VPC) product line. As technology advances, the importance of motion imagery management and analysis has continued to rise. Industries that can benefit from the AIMES product suite range from federal to state and local governments to a wide-variety of commercial and international markets.


  • Full Motion Video Ingestion and Management

    The AIMES Server component is a content management system for full motion video (FMV), exploited products and related metadata. It allows users to search for and publish content across multiple, independent data stores. AIMES Server uses OGC-compliant geospatial queries and web services to allow its data to be accessed by standards-based clients.
  • Enhanced Exploitation and Analysis

    The AIMES Exploit exploitation client software interfaces with the AIMES Server database to leverage metadata richness and other data artifacts to bring mission synchronization and geospatial empowerment to data analysis and exploitation. It includes viewing of live video feeds, streamlined workflow, advanced search, geospatial visualization and search, and the ability to view and exploit wide-area motion imagery. AIMES Exploit offers an intuitive user interface with dockable windows to provide an enhanced visual environment for video exploitation and reporting.
  • Streamlined Generation of Intelligence Products
