The fusion of multiple imaging modalities offers many ad-
vantages over the analysis, separately, of the individual sensory
modalities. In this paper we present a unique approach to the
integrated analysis of disparate sources of imagery for object
recognition. The approach is based on physics-based modeling
of the image generation mechanisms. Such models make possible
features that are physically meaningful and have an improved
capacity to differentiate between multiple classes of objects. We il-
lustrate the use of physics-based approach to develop multisensory
vision systems for different object recognition application domains.
The paper discusses the integration of different suites of sensors,
the integration of image-derived information with model-derived
information, and the physics-based simulation of multisensory
imagery.

It is well known that the human visual system extracts a
