The applications of pixel by pixel VIS/NIR and LIR sensor fusion system were discussed. The visible (VIS) or near infrared (NIR) camera possessed high resolution and easily distinguished enemy and foe while long infrared (LIR) imager could easily see through thin fog/cloud, heavy smoke/dust, foliage and darkness. It was shown that the best solution is to fuse the VIS/NIR and LIR sensors to overcome their shortcomings and take advantages of both sensors.
