Through our experiment, a hybrid optical/electric method has been developed to combine two color (3 - 5 micrometers and 8 - 12 micrometers ) thermal images together. During the fusion process, we have adopted an equivalent optical time delay and integration method which can add dual waveband images directly on the focal planes. Meanwhile, a technique of dynamic range normalization of thermal image has been used to limit the dynamic range of thermal image to match the T.V. monitor. The results of the experiment show that this method can provide a real time (30 frame) single enhanced dual waveband thermal image with a better system performance than the single waveband image.
