24 July 2000 Multiband E/O color fusion with consideration of noise and registration

Sensor fusion of up to three disparate imagers can readily be achieved by assigning each component video stream to a separate channel any standard RBG color monitor such as with television or personal computer systems. Provided the component imagery is pixel registered, such a straightforward systems can provide improved object-background separation, yielding quantifiable human-factors performance improvement compared to viewing monochrome imagery of a single sensor. Consideration is given to appropriate dynamic range management of the available color gamut, and appropriate color saturation in the presence of imager noise.
