Compressed Sensing (CS) is suitable for remote acquisition of hyperspectral
images for earth observation, since it could exploit the strong spatial and
spectral correlations, llowing to simplify the architecture of the onboard
sensors. Solutions proposed so far tend to decouple spatial and spectral
dimensions to reduce the complexity of the reconstruction, not taking into
account that onboard sensors progressively acquire spectral rows rather than
acquiring spectral channels...
For this reason, we propose a novel progressive CS
architecture based on separate sensing of spectral rows and joint
reconstruction employing Total Variation. Experimental results run on raw
AVIRIS and AIRS images confirm the validity of the proposed system.
