The research presented in this paper is aimed at the development of multisensor image fusion. The proposed approach is suitable for integration pan-sharpening of multispectral (MS) bands and SAR imagery based on intensity modulation through the a-trous wavelet transform (ATWT) and the curvelet transform(CT). The ATWT is suitable for dealing with objects where the interesting phenomena, e.g., singularities, are associated with exceptional points, and CT as a new multiscale geometric analysis algorithm is more appropriate for the analysis of the image edges and has better approximation precision and sparsity description. This proposed fusion algorithm makes full use of advantages of these multiscale analysis tools, thus it extracts SPOT-Pan high-pass details from the panchrmomatic image by means of the ATWT and SAR texture and edges by details and rationing the despeckled SAR image to its lowpass approximation derived from the CT.SPOT-Pan high-pass details and SAR texture and edges are used to modulate intensity derived from IHS transform of MS bands. SPOT-Pan, Landsat-MS and Radarsat-SAR images covering a region of sanshui in Guangdong province are used to evaluate the effect of the proposed method. The experiment result shows that the proposed algorithm has greatly improved spatial resolution while it keeps the spectral fidelity.
