We present optic analysis system applied to image processing. System uses liquid crystal polarization filter to image acquisition. Filter works as polarization filter bank, transmits image into elements with different polarization. Acquired image is transformed by adaptive wavelet filter. As a result, we are able to extract contours of areas with ability to polarize reflected electromagnetic waves, fast.
