Advanced Navy sensors will operate simultaneously in multiple spectral bands to achieve target detection, discrimination, and identification. Color image processing is necessary to guide the development of integrated imaging sensors using multi-spectral focal plane arrays and to demonstrate the capabilities of these emerging sensors. This paper discusses human visualization techniques which best transfer multi-spectral information to the observer for critical search, surveillance, and targeting decisions. Fused two- and three-band color video is presented from data gathered at Fort AP Hill using bore-sighted cameras LMIRIS uncooled 320240 long wave infrared, Amber Radiance 256256 mid-wave infrared, and Fairchild image intensified CCD cameras.
