Image Processing Technology Research Department


1. Overview

The Image Processing Technology Research Department was founded in 1992. There are 60 scientific researchers and more than 20 graduate students, whom are 9 professors among the researchers and the front-line scientific researchers are mostly middle-aged and young. Three research laboratories have been divided: Machine Vision Technology Research Laboratory, Artificial Intelligence Technology Research Laboratory, and the Image Processing Innovation Research Laboratory. The main subject areas are intelligent vision measurement, photoelectric information image processing, target recognition and tracking, etc. The research department is oriented to the needs of national defense strategy, aiming at the forefront of international science, carrying out application foundation and engineering technology research in the field of image processing. Over the years, it has undertaken and completed many national, provincial and municipal major scientific research and engineering projects, docking and manipulators in space ships, such as, image processing technologies in the fields of hand-eye vision measurement, shooting range light measurement, aerial reconnaissance, laser confrontation, which are all at the domestic leading level. The research department has won the first prize of the National Science and Technology Progress Award, the second prize of the Science and Technology Progress Award of the National Defense Science and Technology Commission, and the first prize of the Science and Technology Progress Award of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.


2. Academic leader introduction

Sun Haijiang, born in June 1980, Huinan County, Jilin Province, is a real-time image processing technology expert. He is currently the director of the Image Processing Technology Research Department of the Changchun Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the associate professor, and the vice chairman of the Council of the Image and Graphics Society of Jilin Province. Study directions mainly are high-speed image processing technology, target automatic identification tracking measurement technology, optical image enhanced display technology and low-speed small target fast alarm technology. He has published dozens of EI and SCI journal articles as the first author or correspondent author and participated in two projects of the National Natural Science Foundation of China, one of the national 863 projects. Besides, he has also been the head of the image processing system of several model missions, and obtained the second-class defense science and technology progress.



3. Research fields

1) Space vision measurement
With integrated design and manufacturing capabilities of opto-mechatronics systems, the Department independently developed a variety of visual measurement cameras, breaking through the high-precision calibration of cameras, the design of monocular/binocular /structural light measurement systems, the rapid detection of targets in space complex backgrounds, and the quantitative analysis of system errors, system accuracy testing and other key technologies.
2) Target recognition and tracking
Aimed at target-target optical survey, aerial reconnaissance, image guidance, fire control aiming, etc., research on target recognition and tracking technology, research and development of target intelligent recognition and battlefield situational awareness technology based on deep learning for aircraft, vehicles, ships, personnel.
3) High-speed image processing and imaging
High-precision tracking technology for fire control systems such as laser weapons, with tracking ability to resist spot interference, and processing frame rate up to 1000Hz; high-speed domestic integrated camera with integrated storage and intelligent processing, and high-performance 3D imaging system such as TOF and APD Research and development capabilities.
4) Image simulation and testing
Various large/small solar simulators, earth simulators, and star simulators have been developed for manned spaceflight, optical simulation testing, etc. Various camera data format simulation systems have already been applied to the real reproduction of task scene data.
5) Industrial testing, intelligent manufacturing, smart medical care
Application of machine vision and intelligent algorithms to achieve mobile phone panels, lens defect detection, intelligent picking control, power grid intelligent inspection and intelligent medical equipment development.


4. Research progress
In the field of aerospace measurement, the department has developed a number of visual measurement products such as XX robotic arm monocular cooperative target vision measurement, on-orbit assembly binocular cooperative target measurement, XX rigid arm structured light vision measurement, binocular stereo vision measurement system, which has been applied in the XX mechanical arm, 921 pre-research, major innovation and other engineering projects.
In the field of shooting range measurement and control, laser countermeasures and aviation reconnaissance, the department has completed the development of image processing equipment for multiple models of theodolites at various bases, and jointly established a comprehensive laboratory for optoelectronic equipment under the sea environment with the naval base to carry out research on image sharpening technology; The laser damage and high-speed image processing equipment in the field has achieved excellent results in the subgrade test missions of the Navy and Air Force. Currently, on-board tests are being carried out and the aerial reconnaissance image processing equipment is equipped with hundreds of UAV models and participated in many times. The reconnaissance missions of the Diaoyu Islands and the South China Sea and the National Day military parade have been proceeded; the SOC-based domestic ISP high-performance image processing chips have been developed.
In the field of reconnaissance and alarm, the object recognition based on artificial intelligence method, three-dimensional object imaging of multi-data such as laser radar, and wide-area low-slow target warning equipment have all participated in project development in the fields of the Science and Technology Commission of the Military Commission.
In terms of military and civilian integration, the department has carried out substantive cooperation with well-known enterprises and institutions such as Shenzhen Huawei, Foxconn, Foshan Jihua Laboratory and Jilin University First Hospital.
