Abstract
The use of near, mid wavelength and long wavelength infrared imagery for the detection of mines and concealed weapons is demonstrated using several techniques. The fusion algorithms used are wavelet based fusion and Fuzzy Logic Approach (FLA) fusion. The FLA is presented as one of several possible methods for combining images from different sensors for achieving an image that displays more information than either image separately. Metrics are suggested that could rate the fidelity of the fused images, such as, an entropy metric.
