Abstract : Much military-specific manufacturing involves complex, special purpose electro-optical and electro-mechanical systems where development and fabrication costs can't be spread across high-volume civilian products. Computer vision systems are an important enabling technology for the cost effective, flexible automation needed to produce such systems. Our work focuses on the creation of accurate and usable geometric models of manufactured objects. Such models allow for update of manufacturing processes and easy modification of existing parts. They are also central to emerging technologies such as simulation-based design and virtual prototyping.
