Because of the limitation of physiological characteristics of human eyes, it is necessary to develop vision enhancement system for maritime search and rescue (SAR-VES), which is intended to improve the poor searching performance of human vision at sea. A system with its framework architecture, which integrate the imaging systems of visible light, infrared, radar and satellite remote sensing, is proposed in this paper to compensate the weakness of the human observation in the maritime search and rescue environment. The system will promote the sensitivity and the detection rate of targets, especially small ones, at sea. It will help improve the safety of life at sea and reduce economical losses in marine accidents.
