Image enhancement is an increasingly crucial tool with a growing number of military, law enforcement, scientific, and commercial applications. This state-of-the-art book provides image analysts with today's most powerful image enhancing techniques together with methods for measuring system performance when each technique is applied. The book enables analysts get the most out of current imaging systems and make the best hardware/software decisions in developing the next-generation image acquisition and analysis capabilities their work demands. Practitioners will discover today's most advanced techniques for single image reconstruction, super-resolution image reconstruction, image deblur and restoration, and contrast enhancement. This well-illustrated book is supported with nearly 350 equations that save professionals time and effort working on their challenging projects.
