Advanced Image Processing of Aerial Imagery

Glenn A. Woodell, Daniel J. Jobson, Zia-ur Rahman, Glenn D. Hines


Aerial imagery of the Earth is an invaluable tool for the assessment of ground features, especially during times of disaster. Researchers at NASAs Langley Research Center have developed techniques which have proven to be useful for such imagery. Aerial imagery from various sources, including Langleys Boeing 757 Aries aircraft, has been studied extensively. This paper discusses these studies and demonstrates that better-than-observer imagery can be obtained even when visibility is severely compromised. A real-time, multi-spectral experimental system will be described and numerous examples will be shown.
