Keywords: Multi-sensor image fusion, Multi-resolution SVD, image fusion performance evaluation metrics


A novel image fusion technique based on multi-resolution singular value decomposition (MSVD) has been presented and evaluated. The performance of this algorithm is compared with that of well known image fusion technique using wavelets. It is observed that image fusion by MSVD perform almost similar to that of wavelets. It is computationally very simple and it could be well suited for real time applications. Moreover, MSVD does not have a fixed set of basis vectors like FFT, DCT and wavelet etc. and its basis vectors depend on the data set.
