Joint work with Abhijit Mahalanobis. 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.
