Abstract
THE PROPOSED COMPUTER-BASED SYSTEM TO SUPERIMPOSE THE IMAGE OF THREAT WEAPONS ONTO THE X-RAY PROJECTION IMAGE OF HAND BAGGAGE IS BASED ON (1) MODELING OF X-RAY PROJECTION IMAGES OF SELECTED THREAT WEAPONS IN A VARIETY OF ROTATIONAL POSITIONS. (2) COMPUTER DETECTION AND TRACKING OF REAL-TIMEMOVING X-RAY IMAGES OF SCANNED HAND BAGGAGE. (3) COMPUTER IDENTIFICATION OF APPROPRIATE PLACEMENT OF SIMULATED THREAT WEAPON PROJECTION IMAGES WITHIN THE REAL-TIME MOVING X-RAY IMAGE OF THE HAND BAGGAGE, AND (4) SUPER IMPOSITION OFTHE SIMULATED PROJECTION IMAGE OF THE THREAT WEAPON ONTO THEMOVING REAL-TIME X-RAY IMAGE OF THE HAND BAGGAGE USING SUBTRACTIVE SUPERIMPOSITION. THE SYSTEM WILL BE DESIGNED FOR IMPLEMENTATION USING LOW COST, OFF THE SHELF MICROCOMPUTER AND IMAGE PROCESSING HARDWARE AS WELL AS USINGEXISTING IMAGE PROCESSING, PATTERN RECOGNITION, AND OBJECT TRACKING SOFTWARE MODULES.
