Abstract
The goal of this Phase I SBIR is to define a set of algorithms that will detect and characterize static man-made objects highly obscured by foliage within multi-view, multi-channel optical data collected passively from UAVs or other aerial platforms. The proposed algorithm stream will be constructed so as to comprehend and mitigate real-world interfering effects such as clouds, smoke and haze. During Phase I, critical components of the defined algorithm stream will be demonstrated and evaluated using data from simulated and actual, multi-channel, multi-view image data collections.
