Est.imated Completion Time: 3 months


This course provides image processing background for understanding modern military applications, such as long range target selection, medium range identification, and short range guidance of new weapons systems. Subjects include image sampling and quantization, image representation, enhancement, transformation, encoding, and data compression. Predictive coding, transform coding, and inter frame coding techniques are also introduced. 3D to 2D imaging projections are also introduced to extract 3D information either from motion or stereo imaging. Some effort is directed toward image compression techniques particularly suited for multimedia video conferencing.
