To start with, the MDAT was conceived as a true, integrated Lockheed-Martin and JSF program office team effort.
From those, 12 reference missions were constructed and analyzed in the MDAT. The 12 reference missions were stressing cases for the air system that emphasized the missions that the Services identified as top priorities for JSF.
The Stsz atom is the sample size, Stco atom is chunk offset, Mdat atom is frame media data, and Stts atom includes the time to sample.
(3) Any unnecessary media data in the Mdat atom is deleted because Mdat atom has the previous media data.
Since each VOP (Video Object Plane) has a distinct video-start-code based on MPEG-4 video standards , frames are extracted from the video data in Mdat, B-frame is dropped and I- and P-frames are moved to the locations of B-frames.
