Paper Abstract

In this paper, a real-time detection algorithm for small moving target in FLIR image sequence was proposed, it is based on certain-factor (CF) and composed of two components: a predetector and a trace matcher. The predetector implements a N-P test on each pixel of the input image and outputs a record denoting the pixel's information for each detected pixel. The trace matcher matches the detected pixels in image with previously formed traces. Two certain-factors were introduced to traces. According to the value of CF, the matcher can identify the target in the image sequence. Performance analysis and simulation results were presented.
