Paper Abstract

The discrete cosine transform (DCT) due to its excellent properties that the images can be represented in spatial/spatial-frequency domains, has been applied in sequence data analysis and image fusion. For intensity and range images of ladar, through the DCT using one dimension window, the statistical property of Rényi entropy for images is studied. We also analyzed the change of Rényi entropy’s statistical property in the ladar intensity and range images when the man-made objects appear. From this foundation, a novel method for generating saliency map based on DCT and Rényi entropy is proposed. After that, ground target detection is completed when the saliency map is segmented using a simple and convenient threshold method. For the ladar intensity and range images, experimental results show the proposed method can effectively detect the military vehicles from complex earth background with low false alarm.
