Technical feasibility

  SECTION I: Testing

1 Has the R & D result been tested?
1a In what mode has the result been tested? Pilot Application – tested in part
The result had been tested with large number of test images (satellite images of high resolution and sequences of multi view images). For the testing was developed special software, which represents the new algorithms used for the processing. The compressed groups of images are saved using a special format. For the comparison were used software products based on the famous standards JPEG and JPEG 2000 (Lura Smart compress and Irfan View). Besides, special software for calculation of the PSNR of the restored images was also developed. This permits the objective evaluation of the restored images quality.
1b.   Please describe and discuss the testing results
The testing results confirmed the expected results: the efficiency of the new method was proved. For each group of test images were calculated the compression ratio and the PSNR of the restored image. Similar calculations were done for the JPEG and JPEG2000 standards.
1c. To what extent does the result correspond to the initially defined task?
The results correspond to the initially defined task.

SECTION 2: Current Stage of Development

2a To what extent does the development team have technical resources for supporting the production of a new product[1]? (Researchers, human resources, hardware, etc. )
The R&D result is a result of the collective effort of the developers and they could be available for technical advice if the product is to be produced. 
2b What are the technical issues that need to be tackled for full deployment, if needed?
The product still needs additional improvement of the user interface, which to make the processing of a group of images easier. At present, the images should be accessed by the user one-by-one.
2c What additional technical resources are needed for the production of this new product?
Fast PC with special software for image processing
2d Overall assessment of the current stage of technical development.
The R&D result is technically feasible.

SECTION 3: Deployment

3a Define the demands for large scale production in terms of
  • Materials : kinds , quantities, costs
  • technologies, tools, machineries
  • Staff effort in man/hours or man/months
 No special demands for materials and technologies. In total: needed time 4-6 months

SECTION 4: Overall Assessment

1 What is you overall assessment of the technical feasibility of the research result?
The R&D result is technically feasible.
