Enhancing two-dimensional range images rendered from three-dimensional streak tube imaging lidar (STIL) data

A method is provided for enhancing two-dimensional range images rendered from three-dimensional STIL data. Briefly, the rendered range image data is modified to compensate for jitter effects associated with the STIL camera system, has background portions of the resulting data modified to compensate for CCD array effects and range intensity roll-off associated with the STIL camera system, has a salt and pepper" noise reduction routine applied thereto, and has a histogram clip routine applied thereto."
