Morphological filters are used in conjunction with wavelets to improve the recognition performance after fusion. After morphological filtering, wavelets are used to construct multiresolution representations of the source images. Once the source images are decomposed, the details are combined to form a composite decomposed image. This method allows details at different levels to be combined independently so that important information is maintained in the final composite image.
