Abstract : This document describes the physical configuration and components used in the image processing system referred to as IDAPS (Image Data Automated Processing System). This system was developed by the Environmental Research Institute of Michigan (ERIM) for Eglin Air Force Base. The system is designed to perform manual (operator controlled) GADS (Graphic Attitude Determination System) processing and will serve as a baseline system designed for future enhancements to perform automatic GADS processing and other manual and automated image processing tasks. GADS image processing entails aligning a 2-D projection of a 3-D model of an object with a planar image of the actual object captured on film. In the manual GADS system the operator aligns the model to the object image by moving the model overlay on a monitor screen and visually aligning it with the object image on the screen. Once the model has been aligned to the image of the object, six parameters indicating the position and orientation of the object are obtained. This positional data is then stored in a file for subsequent processing. Keywords: Image processing, Computer systems.
