The concept of Integrated Sensing and Processing (ISP) suggests that a
sensor should collect data in a manner that is consistent with the end
objective. Thus ISP seeks to minimize the collection of redundant data,
reduce processing time and improve overall performance. We present a
case study of ISP using a multi-spectral camera which allows the spatial
resolution of the data to be varied in addition to selecting spectral
bands that enable the detection of targets in background clutter. This
paper is a preliminary description of work in progress, and illustrates
the basic concepts by means of several examples.
