In completing this Phase 2 SBIR, ATK Mission Research with help from the University of Dayton, has accomplished the intended goal of the SBIR program by developing a commercially marketable Hyperspectral Image Enhancement system. This system implements a coherent and rigorous physics model for HSI spatial resolution enhancement on a Mercury Multi-Computer platform. Our SBIR research effort has led to the completion of a Maximum A Posteriori MAP algorithm for constructing a high-spatial resolution hyperspectral enhancement from a low-spatial resolution hyperspectral image, by incorporating registered higher-resolution imagery from an auxiliary sensor. Although we have focused on the enhancement of a hyperspectral image using high-resolution panchromatic data, the estimation software delivered allows for any number of spectral bands to be employed from the auxiliary sensor.
