Paper Abstract

Segmentation of ground based targets embedded in clutter obtained by airborne Infrared (IR) imaging sensors is one of the challenging problems in automatic target recognition. In this paper a new texture based segmentation technique is presented that uses the statistics of 2D wavelet decomposition components of the local sections of the image. A measure of statistical similarity is then used to segment the image and separate the target from the background. This technique is applied on a set of real sequential IR imagery and has shown to produce a high degree of segmentation accuracy across varying ranges.
