“VIDEO SIGNAL PROCESSING for THERMAL IMAGING APPLICATIONS”
Abstract: Thermal Imaging presents its own set of interesting video signal processing problems. In this talk we will review some of them and look at potential solutions. The main purpose of the presentation is to get students or early career scientist excited about the possibilities of thermal imaging but anyone curious about sensing in more exotic wavebands should learn something. We will cover some basics on why thermal imagers have different properties and problem sets than typical reflected light imagers and some signal reconstruction solutions to overcome those problems. We will also look at some physical world phenomenology for LWIR/MWIR imagers are particularly well suited. All topics will be illustrated with images and videos which.
Short bio: Nicholas Högasten is a transplanted Swede living with wife and two college age daughters in Santa Barbara, CA. He has 20+ years’ experience in thermal imaging and is currently a Technical Fellow serving as Head of Digital at Teledyne FLIR in Goleta, CA. He has functioned in numerous senior technical leadership positions at FLIR/Teledyne FLIR, is an inventor on more than 80 issued US patents and co-author on two peer reviewed papers. Most of his technical contributions are in the field of video signal processing but also include optics, systems and ROIC design. His technical interests are broad and include multispectral applications, computational imaging and AI. When not working he enjoys hiking (leisurely), cooking (eclectically) and dancing Argentine tango (with great difficulty).
