3D video-Doppler-radar (VIDAR) imaging system

Image Number 8 for United States Patent #8009081.

A moving sensor suite for imaging a scene has three Doppler radars, two moving and one fixed, a fixed video camera and a fixed GPS receiver. The Doppler radars measure the relative velocities between the radars and the scene, as well as the scene's electromagnetic reflectivity, while the video camera records the motion of the camera and the optical property of the scene. The correct registration of the Doppler radars and the camera is established by finding the intersections of the moving Doppler radar motion vectors with the image plane of the video camera. The scene features in the first frame are determined by Doppler circle intersections. The correspondences of the features in the next two frames are established by a feature matching operation.
