Abstract
The Pipelined Resampling Processor (PRP) was presented to this conference in 1983 in concept as a practical solution to real-time high resolution geometric image rectification needs. In the present report we present performance results obtained from the PRP development unit completed in late 1983. The small size, weight, and power requirements of the PRP and its high throughput make it very well suited for space and airborne applications where goemetric correction of image data must be done autonomously in real-time. This high resolution geometric correction is a necessary adjunct to applications using frame differencing or frame averaging for motion compensation, moving target indication, noise suppression or data compression as well as applications requiring precise correction of focal plane sampling distortions. By equipping the PRP with manual controls, image geometry can be manipulated at video rates from a console to achieve a much higher image analysis throughput than is possible for more general purpose processing facilities. In mapping, merging, classifi-cation and registration applications, interactive video rate processing will be important in bringing these and other image analysis techniques out of the laboratory and into an operational environment.
