Hyper-Spectra Space-Based Infrared Image Restoration and Composition

  • George A. Lampropoulos
  • James F. Boulter


In this paper we present methods to analyze, restore and compose multi-sensor hyper (or multi)-spectra images. For the composite multi-sensor and/or hyper (or multi)-spectra image the Karhunen-Loève (K-L) and Gram-Schmidt (G-S) orthogonalization techniques are used in combination with blur estimation and 3-D restoration methods. For the motion estimation or target detection in a set of two frames of the same spectral band the G-S orthogonalization is used. Results from real data from satellite images are presented.
