This Phase I effort sought to develop a passive, electric-optical and infrared EO-IR imaging system. This system employs jointly optimized multi-modal image acquisition and processing methods in order to increase the operational range the distance between the sensor and the objectscene of interest by 10X over a baseline range that corresponds to traditional, single-mode image acquisition in the presence of obscurants. Because the gain in image quality associated with a single optimization technique may be modest, a multi-modal hardware solution combined with coordinated processing techniques was tested during this effort in order to achieve an exponentially more substantial improvement.
