This effort will propose the development of the techniques utilizing the stereo vision technology for creation of a 3D image combined with a 3D rendering of the target tracks and their associated ballistic objects. The main objective of the Phase I effort is to investigate and validate an integrated architecture to observe moving objects and visualize 3-D stereo images based on the data from two or more image sensors. The project will design and integrate a novel and real-time stereo-image matching technique, an efficient 3D scene reconstruction scheme, and an advanced visualization approach. The reconstructed 3D image will be embedded in a 3D graphical space that renders depictions of a target track and its associated ballistic objects. This Gestalt view combined with the user's capability for highly interactive interfacing with this visualization space will greatly improve interpretation processes for hard-to-discriminate targets.
