Abstract:

The initial effort was the refinement of a maximum entropy-based image restoration technique for use in digital image processing and image enhancement using Weiner filters. The technique provides a fast and stable-to- convergence routine that can be applied to numerous distortion functions. A majority of the effort was developing and implementing a data management program for the SDIOs Infrared Background Signature Survey IBSS Shuttle-based experiments. The contract produced a Data Management Plan, an Interface Control Document for data distribution formats, and data access and display software programs for calibrating and surveying the data. An indepth survey was performed of the state of the art of scientific workstation technology. A report provided different concepts on the utilization of scientific workstations in the Geophysics Laboratory, the different hardware and software systems available, and the issues involved in designing and acquiring a workstation. Data from the Infrared Astronomical Satellite IRAS were processed using available image enhancement techniques to update the sky catalogues of infrared sources. Results from this analysis were applied to developing data processing and analysis concepts for the SDIOs Midcourse Space Experiment that will have similar instrumentation.
