Abstract
Research Support Instruments Inc. (RSI) proposes to research and develop a multi-frame processing algorithm that is uniquely tailored to combine a frame sequence from a kill vehicle to improve the identification of a target. The combination process will diminish the effect of motion blur that occurs when randomly translated frames are summed. Removing the blur will greatly enhance the intensity of the object and thus improve identification. RSI will investigate all manners of registration and blur removal that adhere to the restrictions presented by the task. Expected candidates include an image registration technique based on the projection of rows and columns, and a novel motion blur removal using an advanced blind deconvolution technique.
