MAO Shi yi ZHAO Wei (Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Dept. of Electronic Engineering)
Multisensor image fusion is included in multisensor information fusion and has been applied widely. The techniques of image fusion are different from general information fusion techniques because of the particularity of images.The development condition about the multisensor image fusion is introduced firstly. Secondly, the main steps in image fusion process are described and the combinations of different sensors are given. The main image fusion methods, including multiresolution image fusion methods, methods based on wavelet and false color methods etc., are discussed. The performance of every method is analyzed qualitatively. The criteria how to evaluate image fusion method are given and the development directions of image fusion are pointed out finally.
