Abstract
Areté Associates proposes development of an automatic image fusion capability that provides superior scene content than any of its spectral components with less operator workload. To do so we will focus on overcoming the challenges of registration (spatial and temporal) and noise in the fused result. We will heavily leverage (a) proven registration algorithms in our real-time software package AGILE; and (b) advanced experience in noise reduction, physical modeling, and robust image fusion with layering techniques.
