The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of a new na resolution independent digital image compression technology in the area of real time compression for imagery including types generated by electro-optical, imaging infrared and millimeter wave sensors. The technology is based on Fractal Transform technology. Digital imagery is generated at a high rate and needs to be distributed over communication links of varying bandwidth. The nature of video is evolving as sensors, training systems and displays require ever higher resolutions. High compression rates and resolution independence are needed to accomodate the varying bandwidths and evolving requirements. Image data representative of the products of Army sensors will be identified and obtained. This data will be digitized and then processed using Fractal Transform technology to obtain a compressed representation of the Army sensor imagery. A real-time test of expansion and display of imagery representative of that produced from Army type sensors will be conducted. The final report will describe the results of this test. Configurations to achieve real time compression will be evaluated and described in the final report.
