Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present a new statistical model to describe infrared images. The proposed pdf is a compound model derived from the Gaussian and the GT-pdf. Closed form expressions for the statistical moments of the model are derived. For specific values of its parameters the model ends up to be simpler pdfs. The proposed compound pdf models the thermal radiation from the background, the sunlight scattering as well as scintillating effects. We propose a parameter estimation technique which is based on the equivalence of experimental and theoretical moments. Experimental results are provided for model validation in real data as well as for demonstration of the segmentation procedure.
