Abstract : This report details tne results or a study that was conducted in the application of wavelet transforms to the processing of digital reconnaissance imagery. Although the major emphasis in the study centered on General Frame wavelets, orthonormal wavelets (Daubechies) were also implemented. The study results led to the implementation of a set of wavelet based tools to be included in the Image Processing Toolkit at Rome Laboratory. Some of the tools were designed to aid in the visualization of the interaction of the wavelet transform and imagery. Other tools were designed to provide different views of the imagery (such as pseudocoloration) and to enhance certain image features based on the localization property of the wavelet transform.
