SPHINX (Satellite Process Handling Images uNder XWindow) is an efficient and intuitive image analysis and display system for satellite image processing needs. The concept behind Msphinx is to develop a progressive system architecture for future satellite sensors that is completely independent of the data volume, size and format derived from satellite observations, without developping a complex internal data structure that will loose the particularity of satellite data : series of pixels forming rows or columns of an image. The new system design conserves the unique windowing scheme for displaying images but changes the depth and size of the internal data. The system consists of the following elements:

  • Data Base and User Virtual Plane Structure
  • View Window and Printing Window
  • Color Management
  • Processing Functions
  • Communication capabilities
