Abstract
OKSI proposes to develop a modular architecture to support the fusion of multiple imaging data products to provide enhanced spatial and temporal resolution of the overall fused image product. The software toolkit utilizes pan sharpening and temporal upsampling algorithms to fuse all data products to highest spatial and temporal resolution possible. BENEFIT: Upgrading the sensor hardware on existing multispectral and hyperspectral platforms is an expensive undertaking. Existing platforms include ground-based tracking mounts, air- and space-borne systems. A software solution could be utilized to enhance all sensor platforms at a fraction of the cost of a hardware upgrade. The applications include data collected for Missile Warning Systems (MWS), Ballistic Missile Defense, Improvised Explosive Device (IED) detection, mine detected, hostile fire, rocket propelled grenades, ground vehicle detection and tracking, and more. The software has applications to mapping and Geographical Information Systems where layers of multispectral imaging can be combined at the best possible resolution and georegistration of various imaging modalities.
