Paper Abstract

With the variety of advanced payloads available in E/O systems, operators can easily become confused or overwhelmed with the amount of data available to them. FLIR systems has taken the approach of backing sensor applications with advanced signal processing and control systems to reduce the data set to relevant information and reduce operator workload. Architectures are discussed for signal processing and implementations with FPGA and DSP chips are compared and contrasted. Three signal processing case studies are covered in detail: autofocus, haze penetration and image blending.
