Paper Abstract

Image fusion is a difficult task since the volume of data is quite large and the target is usually not completely represented in any single channel. Results from a spiral image fusion technique based on the pulse-coupled neural network to fuse channels into a set of single channel complex images are presented. These new images can then be filtered by a Fourier filter to find the target. The example used to demonstrate this technique uses images from a 30 channel multispectral sensor viewing a single scene.
