Paper Abstract

The GStreamer architecture allows for simple modularized processing. Individual GStreamer elements have been developed that allow for control, measurement, and ramping of a blackbody, for capturing continuous imagery from a sensor, for segmenting out a MRTD target, for applying a blur equivalent to that of a human eye and a display, and for thresholding a processed target contrast for "calling" it. A discussion of each of the components will be followed by an analysis of its performance relative to that of human observers.
