Abstract
THE OVERALL PROGRAM IS ENVISIONED TO REQUIRE THREE PHASES TOWARDS THE PRODUCTION OF A SET OF CAPABILITIES THAT WILL ALLOW REGISTRATION BETWEEN DIGITAL MULTI-SENSOR RECORDS. THE FIRST PHASE OF THE PROGRAM IS PROPOSED AS A STUDY IN WHICH THE ANALYSIS WILL PRODUCE REGISTRATION SCENARIOS THAT WILL ACCOMMODATE MULTI-SENSOR REGISTRATIONS. THE SCENARIOS WILL DIFFER SINCE MAP DATA IS EXPECTED TO RANGE FROM COMPLETE FEATURE AND ELEVATION DATA COVERAGE TO NON-EXISTANT COVERAGE. IN ADDITION, THE SCENARIOS WILL DIFFER SINCE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS WILL CHANGE TO ACCOMMODATE THE PAIRING OF SIMILAR (SAME SENSOR) AND DISSIMILAR (MULTI-SENSOR) IMAGES. TO CREATE SCENARIOS, PHASE I WILL CONCENTRATE ON INVESTIGATING AND ANALYZING 1) MAP DATA CONTENT DEFINITIONS, 2) ERROR BUDGE GUIDELINES FOR MAP DATA AND GEOMETRIC MODELS, 3) GEOMETRIC REGISTRATION MODEL DEFINITION, 4) INHERENT RESOLUTIONS FOR MAP PRODUCTS AND IMAGES, AND 5) THE UTILIZATION OF VISION UNDERSTANDING FOR REGISTRATION. THESE ABOVE TECHNICAL INVESTI-GATIONS AND ANALYSES WILL BE FOLLOWED BY THE PROCESS OF DESCRIBING MULTI-SENSOR REGISTRATION SCENARIOS AND A TEST THAT EXERCISE A REGISTRATION SCENARIO. THE TECHNICAL INVESTIGATIONS, ANALYSES, SCENARIOS AND SCENARIO TEST WILL BE PRESENTED IN A FINAL REPORT ORIENTED TOWARDS RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PHASE II DEVELOPMENTS.
