Abstract:

This study effort evaluates the feasibility of utilizing one or two-dimensional arrays of image sensing and recording elements rather than a single sensing and recording element in image transmission systems. This array scanning concept facilitates the implementation of many sophisticated image processing functions including bandwidth compression, image enhancement, modulation transfer function correction, and two-dimensional filtering. Extensive computer simulation of these processing functions and subjective analysis of the resulting imagery, along with the results of the array sensing and array recording feasibility evaluation, are used to formulate the trade-offs necessary to provide a conceptual system design and implementation. The conceptual design that is presented fully exploits the nature of the array scanning. Various practical aspects and system considerations regarding the conceptual design are treated. Author
