3. Before. Proliferation. The object of study in this text is the "proliferation" image,
which has come to define a considerable portion of contemporary international
security study and practice. Images, however, do not appear de novo, and in the
case of weapons proliferation the various technologies that are of concern have
been the object of international practice for much of the twentieth century. What is
novel about the "proliferation" image is the way it ties these various technologies

The image, of course, is not totally new. Versions of it have been constituted by
visionaries—H. G. Wells is an outstanding example—at least from the time of the
Industrial Revolution or before. But nuclear weapons gave substance to the
image and disseminated it everywhere, making it the dubious psychic property of
the common man. Moreover, the element of self-extermination must be
differentiated from older religious images of Armageddon, "Final Judgment," or

extraordinary power to harness your anxieties and desires, to take on their

going to the hospital) and the visual depiction of their desires (daydreaming in
front of the TV).

The first objective of this study is to develop fusion algorithms for the infrared and
visual images in surveillance applications. The studies include the registration of
IR and visual video sequences, multi-modal image (video sequence)
enhancement, and concealed weapon detection and visualization. Before any
fusion operation, the pixels from multi-modal images should be aligned through
the registration process so that pixel-level processing can be applied directly.
