Paper Abstract

The Defense Research Establishment, Valcartier has an ongoing project on a multi-sensors system, called CAMUS (Common Aperture MUlti-Sensors). The main objective of this project is to demonstrate the concept of fusing three sensors on a single chassis. The project covers the development of the sensors' head and the processing sub-systems required for fusing the acquired data and information. The three sensors identified for this project are: a visible camera, a 3 - 5 micrometer infrared camera and a 94 GHz millimeter-wave radar. This paper describes the approach used to combine the three sensors along with the various processing schemes to merge the visible and infrared images with the radar information. The CAMUS system will present all the information gathered by the three sensors on a single display to the operator. The main application of this project is to demonstrate an advanced sight for a direct fire control system.
