Quantitative evaluation of target acquisition capability when restoring images blurred by sensor motion Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • Image blurring due to sensor motion can often be the limiting factor in the resolution of the picture and, hence, on our ability to detect targets. In a recent paper, we've proposed a method for the restoration of such images; good results have been obtained. In this paper we propose to quantitatively evaluate the effect of such a restoration process on automatic target acquisition. A method is derived to determine the probability of detection for targets which have been blurred by sensor motion. This method is then applied to restored and non- corrected pictures. The degree to which such real-time restoration is worthwhile is discussed.
