Research Institution
The Army is seeking the development of an innovative image-based fusion and target detection algorithm that can collate incomplete information from multiple and disparate sensors. Intelligent Optical Systems (IOS) proposes to develop a differential mapping method that is based on a Parametric Singularity Fusion (PSF) algorithm. The PSF technology derives from IOS' proprietary developments in combined image modeling and fusion. The proposed PSF technology will use an optimal nonlinear filtering approach to implement camera position invariant primitives as building blocks in a 3-D modeling and fusion system that will quickly and accurately sense and understand objects and features in a complex environment. In Phase I, IOS will: 1) provide proof of feasibility and develop the PSF algorithm to represent the target images as a photometric polynomial model; 2) initiate development of key 3-D concepts and relationships; and 3) provide the conceptual 3-D topology multi-level fusion and algorithms. In Phase II, IOS will demonstrate verifiable prototype software.
