Paper Abstract

Arealtime digital signal filtering system has been designed to investigate new methods of passive IR image processing with a combined staring and scanning IR array sensor. The image processing consists of cascaded spatial and temporal filters applied to the IR scene data to extract known features from cluttered and moving backgrounds. This approach concentrates on the detection of unresolved targets from large IR scenes. Testbed and simulation results have demonstratedthe detection of a target whose intensity was three orders of magnitude less than the background value.
