1 October 1992 Multiresolution image decomposition for processing reconnaissance images
Author Affiliations +
Recent increases in focal plane size and spatial resolution, coupled with the introduction of multi-spectral sensor suites in tactical reconnaissance platforms, have exponentially increased the volume of image data to be processed. This paper proposes the use of a quadrature mirror filter compression technique whereby intrinsic multiresolution pyramid decomposition can simplify implementation of many of the algorithms required to exploit these images. A subband coding system, based on the spatial frequency and orientation of the decomposed images, is presented. Implementation of additional algorithms based on multiresolution pyramid decomposition is also discussed. These algorithms include: edge detection and restoration, real-time minification of large E-O images for screening purposes and interpolation with electronic zooming for target identification.
