Abstract:

Section I of this report discusses the theoretical underpinnings of a new mathematical model describing some of the perceptual characteristics of human sensory information processing. While much of the mathematics of the proposed model is explained here, experimental testing and verification has yet to take place. This work will continue to be pursued under alternate funding. Section II discusses in detail the background considerations necessary to understand the problems of removing atmospheric turbulence blur from images. This area of research is currently in transition from the stage of artificial computer models, to the stage of working with the simplest real data, i.e. case of a point light source, a star, viewed through the earths atmosphere. After the termination of this contract this work will be funded by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research under grant number 77-3212. Section III reports the background and progress to date on building the tools necessary for an image understanding system. These tools as described were incorporated into a manual image understanding system designed to do analysis by synthesis. The system handles two-dimensional single objects on non-textured backgrounds, but only at the level of a trial testbed. Necessary next steps in developing a working system are outlined.
