The detection of targets in broad and highly cluttered scenes is an ongoing challenge for imagin electro-optic technology. We are interested in designing new imaging devices that provide optimal detection of targets in broad cluttered landscapes. Our approach is to employ image fusion where images from a number of electro-optic bands provide the input to algorithms for target detection. The aim is to produce images where the background clutter is suppressed and potential targets are highlighted either by brightness to color. Successful algorithms provide the basis for new sensor designs. This paper discusses the process of image enhancements and new sensor designs.
