PICTE manages standard and high definition full motion video (FMV) sensor chaos and is an essential backbone to managing multiple types of feed inputs in the FMV world.

PICTE is designed in close alignment with the standards and profiles established by the Motion Imagery Standards Board (MISB). PICTE provides real-time Motion Imagery Standards Profile (MISP) streaming of FMV streams, supporting MISB standards 0102.11 and 0601.11.

PICTE software runs on Microsoft® Windows and Linux ® servers and provides image capture of standard and high definition video feeds and conversion to MISB-compliant formats for broadcast and archiving.


The image capture element receives real-time FMV video and metadata, performs any necessary metadata transformations, and multiplexes the video and metadata into a synchronized, standards-compliant output stream. The streaming output from PICTE can be viewed in real-time using AIMES Exploit or AIMES Viewer software while simultaneously being archived to the motion imagery library of AIMES Server.

PICTE can also be used with other third-party MISB standards-compliant motion imagery exploitation solutions.


PICTE is a 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). 

PICTE is also the FMV solution of choice for many United States Intelligence Agencies and international NATO partners.
