Abstract
Distributed aperture sensor (DAS) systems can enhance the situational awareness of operators in both manned and unmanned platforms. In such a system, images from multiple sensors must be registered and fused into a seamless panoramic mosaic in real time, whilst being displayed with very low latency to an operator. This paper describes an algorithm for solving the multiple-image alignment problem and an architecture that leverages the power of consumer graphics processing units (GPU) to provide a live panoramic mosaic display. We also describe other developments aimed at integrating high resolution imagery from an independently steerable fused TV/IR sensor into the mosaic, panorama stabilisation and automatic target detection.
