Paper Abstract

High resolution and highly sensitive colour digital sensors are desired for many applications, including military and civilian missions. Due to the limitation of spectral bandwidth, the sensitivity of a digital colour sensor is usually three times lower than that of a digital panchromatic sensor with a spectral bandwidth of the entire visible range or a range from visible to near infrared. This paper introduces a conceptual architecture for producing a triple sensitive colour digital frame sensor. Automatic image fusion techniques are involved to integrate colour and panchromatic images to increase the sensitivity of the colour sensor. Available satellite colour and panchromatic images are tested to prove the concept. The test results demonstrate that the introduced architecture is promising for developing real triple sensitive colour digital sensors.
