We intend to use the emerging technology of compressed sensing and related new algorithms of information science to (1)increase our capacity for hyperspectral image acquisition beyond current capacity by developing new imaging and spectroscopic systems,(2) expand the frontiers from signal recovery to new applications, emphasizing knowledge learning including target and anamoly detection, and (3)strengthen our ability for extracting knowledge from huge data sets beyond current limits imposed by existing computation resources and methods. BENEFIT: Hyperspectral imaging is applied to environmental monitoring, camouflage detection, land mine detection, couterfeit currency and cannabis detection, to name a few. Potential customers include various DoD, police and other government agencies.
