Abstract:

Adverse environmental factors can greatly reduce a submarine"s ability to see ships in the visible band alone. Infra-red imagers can add valuable content, but at the cost of increased workload. Arete Associates proposes an end-to-end fusion system to leverage the power of multi-band imaging without increasing operator workload. Through an innovative suite of registration and fusion algorithms, our system will combine salient content from each input band into a single image while mitigating clutter and artifacts.
