Pansharpening is a domain-specific task of satellite imagery processing, which aims at fusing a multispectral image with a corresponding panchromatic one to enhance the spatial resolution of multispectral image. Most existing traditional methods fuse multispectral and panchromatic images in linear manners, which greatly restrict the fusion accuracy. In this paper, we propose a highly efficient inference network to cope with pansharpening, which breaks the linear limitation of traditional methods. In the network, we adopt a dilated multilevel block coupled with a skip connection to perform local and overall compensation. By using dilated multilevel block, the proposed model can make full use of the extracted features and enlarge the receptive field without introducing extra computational burden. Experiment results reveal that our network tends to induce competitive even superior pansharpening performance compared with deeper models. As our network is shallow and trained with several techniques to prevent overfitting, our model is robust to the inconsistencies across different satellites. View Full-Text
