Abstract:

Providing a fast and accurate way to recognize and designate targets remains a major challenge, particularly in applications that demand rapid ground target identification in cluttered environments. Huge amounts of data and imagery must be sorted in order to discriminate useful information. Existing target recognition methods are vastly time consuming, and can be extremely prone to errors, leading to missed targets and/or unwanted casualties. In this project, Intelligent Optical Systems (IOS) is developing an improved methodology for target recognition using the supportive 3D effect generated with computational hyperstereopsis. The IOS technique uses advanced mathematical techniques to construct dynamically changing scene representations that provide for real-time tracking and upgrading of both perspective and scene content. This approach can even use video streams from conventional (2D) cameras to create hyperstereoscopic video that greatly aids the human eye in recognizing targets. In Phase I of this project, IOS developed advanced software for processing hyperstereoscopic images, and constructed a working hardware demonstration of the system using government-supplied image streams. In Phase II, IOS will extend and improve this system, and will deliver a compact, portable hyperstereoscopic video processing and presentation unit.
