Abstract:

The PI visited NSWC Dahlgren, VA, for six weeks in May-June 2002 and collaborated with scientists in the G33 TEAMS facility, and with Marilyn Rudzinsky of T44 Technology and Photonic Systems Branch. During this visit the PI also presented six educational seminars to NSWC scientists on various aspects of signal processing. Several items from the grant proposal were completed, including 1 wavelet-based algorithms for interpolation of 1-d signals and 2-d images 2 Discrete Wavelet Transform domain based algorithms for filtering of image data 3 wavelet-based smoothing of image sequence data originally obtained for the CRITTIR Clutter Rejection Involving Temporal Techniques in the Infra-Red project. The PI visited the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa to collaborate with colleagues Prof. B.M. Herbst and Prof. J. du Preez on the use of wavelet image processing in conjunction with pattern recognition techniques. The University of Stellenbosch has offered the PI partial funding to support a sabbatical visit in Fall 2003, the primary purpose of which is to enable the PI to develop and enhance his expertise in Pattern Recognition. During the first year, the grant supported publication of 3 referred papers, presentation of 9 seminars and an intensive two-day course on wavelet theory. The grant supported the work of two students who functioned as research assistants.
