Abstract
Image fusion of complementary broadband spectral modalities has been extensively studied for providing performance enhancements to various military applications. With the growing availability of COTS and customized video cameras that image in VIS-NIR, SWIR, MWIR and LWIR, there is a corresponding increase in the practical exploitation of different combinations of fusion between any of these respective spectrums. Equinox Corporation has been developing a unique line of products around the concept of a single unified video image fusion device that can centrally interface with a variety of input cameras and output displays, together with a suite of algorithms that support image fusion across the diversity of possible combinations of these imaging modalities. These devices are small in size, lightweight and have power consumption in the vicinity of 1.5 Watts making them easy to integrate into portable systems.
