Abstract : A wide range of tasks in image processing have been treated under this contract. The categories of image processing covered are target detection, pattern recognition, image recovery from incomplete information, restoration of blurred images in additive and multiplicative noise, motion analysis with fast hierarchical algorithms, image texture modeling and discrimination, image segmentation and removal of cloud cover from aerial photographs. In all of these tasks, new, efficient, and fast algorithms have been developed, which comprise a significant contribution to the field of image processing. Within the report are descriptions of the tasks and the resulting processing algorithms and citations of publications produced under this contract. (Author)
