Abstract
The US Navy seeks innovative technologies to fuse dynamic imagery and static models into a single synthesized multi-sensor scene. This data fusion will allow targeting and mission planning in a volumetric 3D space, a feat which has never before been available. To readily move to the next frontier in image visualization and exploitation, new solutions must be able to: automatically register multi-source imagery; insert synthesized images into the scene; quickly extract precise geopositional measurements; and do all of this in a truly immersive 3D environment. The solution we envision adheres closely to the above points and will provide the necessary photogrammetric solution to providing truly immersive, real-time visualization to meet the needs of the warfighter on a lightweight platform for forward deployment. We will provide an innovative, low-risk solution to the problem of data fusion and 3D scene visualization in real time through state of the art GPU processing and leveraging our already successful data ingesting and precision geopositioning package IApioneer. Using advanced techniques in automated image registration, feature extraction, 3D scene synthesis, and 3D visualization techniques designed for high end holographic and pseudo-holographic displays.
