Paper Abstract

The Information Adaptive System (IAS) is an element of the NASA End-to-End Data System (NEEDS) Phase II, and is focused toward on-board image processing for the NEEDS program. Because the IAS is a data processing system, it is directly applicable to "smart sensor" programs and, as such, represents a preliminary step toward the development of smart sensors. Response nonuniformity correction, geometric correction, data set selection, data formatting, image feature analysis and adaptive system control are some of the functions planned for the IAS. The paper will present the preliminary design of the Information Adaptive System and will discuss plans for its development and demonstration.
