In this paper we present an approach to automatically register and fuse IR and MMW images for concealed weapon detection. The distortion between the two images is assumed to be a rigid body transformation without rotation and we assume that the scale factor can be found from both the sensor parameters and the distance ratio of the object to the two sensors. Our registration procedure involves image segmentation, binary correlation and other image processing algorithms. Our fusion method involves a pyramidal image decomposition scheme based on the wavelet transform. Performance of the image registration and image fusion algorithm is illustrated through an example.
