Abstract : This report describe procurements made under contract number AFOSR-85-0120, as part of the Department of Defense, University Research Instrumentation Program. The equipment purchased is in support of analysis and encoding of color motion imagery. Installation of all equipment has been completed and is functional, attached to a VAX 11/750 in the Department of Electrical Engineering and the Center for Computer Aided Engineering. The major expenditure was for a Gould IP8400 imaging system with high-speed (30 frames per second) color storage and display. This system is operated as a peripheral on the VAX 11/750 running UNIX. To support image processing tasks, a CDA Array Processor was also purchased and attached to the system bus. Finally, to aid in data presentation, a hard-copy print camera was purchased from NISE Corp. The equipment is presently being used for a variety of image processing tasks, both for still and moving images. Plans include doing computer vision research and interdisciplinary work with groups who need real-time display of imagery.
