Whilst for the majority of applications image quality depends on sensor accuracy and principles of image formation, in remote sensing systems information is also degraded by communication errors. To improve image fusion results in the presence of communication and sensor impairments we propose a two-stage approach. Preliminary nonlinear locally-adaptive image processing is applied at the first stage for mitigating impairments produced in image sensors and communication systems, and fusion algorithms are used at the second stage. The efficiency of the proposed algorithms is demonstrated for satellite remote sensing images and simulated data with similar characteristics and distortions. The influence of image distortions and the effectiveness of mitigation are estimated for an image fusion architecture for low-level image classification based on artificial neural networks. Experimental results are presented providing quantitative assessment of the proposed algorithms.
