Paper Abstract

Millimeter wave cameras often have limited pixel count and image uniformity problems. While these may be expected to improve as technology advances, present simple image processing algorithms can provide significant improvement in users displays. Data collected with the existing NIJ camera is shown, along with uniformity corrections, and a straightforward correlation algorithm that provides a tracking dot on a weapon. This give a threat indication on what might at first appear to be a very marginal image stream. Suggestions for future work are also presented.
