DFiS (Multispectral imaging Data Fusion in Space) project addresses ESA EO ID8 Scientific data
exploitation activity line.

The main objectives of the activity were:

1. To develop and evaluate an approach to performing effective data fusion of multispectral data on-board satellites. The focus of the activity was on identifying (in collaboration with downstream users) Regions-of-Interest, then developing image processing techniques (band selection, compression, fingerprinting and classification) that can be used to perform on-board image processing on-board a satellite.

2. To verify the developed approach to multispectral data fusion using relevant multispectral imaging data. The techniques developed in the previous step were evaluated based on their data reduction performance, as well as resources for their execution on-board a satellite.
