Abstract/Description:
Significant reduction in space, weight, power, and cost (SWAP-C) of imaging hardware has induced a paradigm shift in remote sensing where unmanned platforms have become the mainstay. However, mitigating the degraded visual environment (DVE) remains an issue. DVEs can cause a loss of contrast and image detail due to particle scattering and distortion due to turbulence-induced effects. The problem is especially challenging when imaging from unmanned platforms such as autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) and unmanned ariel vehicles (UAV). While single-frame image restoration techniques have been studied extensively in recent years, single image capture is not adequate to address the effects of DVEs due to under-sampling, low dynamic range, and chromatic aberration. Significant development has been made to employ multi-frame image fusion techniques to take advantage of spatial and temporal information to aid in the recovery of corrupted image detail and high-frequency content and increasing dynamic range.
