Abstract : Our principal objective in this research program is to obtain solutions to fundamental problems in computer vision that have broad military relevance, particularly in the areas of cartography and photo interpretation. Current research is directed towards developing automated high-performance techniques for stereocompilation, delineation of linear features, scene partitioning (and material identification), and image matching (and image to database correspondence). In addition to our own research, we have designed and are implementing an integrated testbed system that incorporates the results of research produced throughout the image understanding community. This sytem will provide a coherent demonstration and the evaluation of accomplishments of DARPA's image understanding program, thereby facilitating transfer of this technology to appropriate military organizations.
