The Motion Imagery Standards Board (MISB) is an official standards body that is responsible for reviewing, recommending, and overseeing standards for motion imagery, associated metadata, audio, and related systems. These standards are used by the United States Department of Defense (DoD), Intelligence Community (IC), and the United States Imagery and Geospatial System (USIGS). The goal of the MISB is to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of motion imagery in its applications in the DoD, IC, and ISGIS. To this end, the MISB's mission is to ensure the development, application, and implementation of standards that maximize interoperability, integrity, and quality of motion imagery.


Officially, the MISB was established in accordance with DoD Directive 5105.60 "to formulate, review, and recommend standards for motion imagery, associated metadata, audio, and other related systems" for DoD, IC, and National System for Geospatial-Intelligence (NSG). The MISB is a part of the Geospatial Intelligence Standards Working Group (GWG) of the National Center for Geospatial Intelligence Standards and in turn comprises seven working groups, each of which are assigned different functional areas regarding motion imagery.

Their slogan is:

“Shaping the future of motion imagery to maximize the utility of technology to benefit of the warfighter.”

The MISB meets three times a year in the Washington D.C. area.


The Motion Imagery Standard Profile (MISP) is a direct expression of the MISB mission and serves as the master baseline standards document prepared and managed by the MISB.

Associated Standards

The MISB suite of technologies emphasizes interoperability over all else. With this in mind, MISB has adopted such codec standards as KLV, H.264, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, JPIP, and JPEG 2000.
