Abstract
Toyon Research Corporation proposes research and development of advanced algorithms and efficient software for performing high-resolution georegistered 3D reconstruction with associated error models. The technology will be capable of processing sequences of 2D images to automatically generate and georegister 3D models, with no user intervention required. Rapid processing will be achieved by leveraging modern computer architectures that enable massively-parallel processing using graphics processing units (GPUs), in addition to multi-core central processing units (CPUs). In Phase I, feasibility of high-resolution 3D modeling, georegistration, and development of statistically-consistent error models will be demonstrated. Phase I R & D will also include speed benchmarking and analysis of massively-parallel GPU hardware-accelerated processing to guide design of the Phase II architecture. Implementation and rigorous testing, evaluation, and validation of the developed technology will follow in Phase II. Integration of the developed technology in NGA analysis processes will also be pursued in Phase II
