We study fusion methods allowing one most effectively to improve information content of multispectral aerospace high spatial resolution images with minimal color distortion. Our results indicate that the synergistic processing of multispectral data with the use of the proposed information technology on the basis of ICA- and wavelet transforms gives a better outcome as compared to the classical fusion methods. The synthesized image has some improved performance without spectral distortion
