Hyperspectral Image Restoration Despite advances in sensor technology, hyperspectral (HS) images are inevitably degraded by noise and blur, which can affect information retrieval and content interpretation. Using denoising and deblurring as a preprocessing tool will improve various post-processing tasks, e.g. classification, target detection, unmixing, etc.
We propose a novel restoration algorithm for HS images. Our method first uses PCA to decorrelate the HS images and separate the information content from the noise. The first k PCA channels contain most information of the HS image, and the remaining B ? k PCA channels (where B is the number of spectral bands of HS image) mainly contain noise. If deblurring is performed on these noisy and high-dimensional B ? k PCs, then it will amplify the noise of the data cube and cause high computational cost in processing the data, which is undesirable.
