Abstract: This paper proposes a stacked conditional Generative
Adversarial Network-based method for Near InfraRed
(NIR) imagery colorization. We propose a variant architecture
of Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) that uses multiple
loss functions over a conditional probabilistic generative model.
We show that this new architecture/loss-function yields better
generalization and representation of the generated colored IR
images. The proposed approach is evaluated on a large test
dataset and compared to recent state of the art methods using
