Paper Abstract

A set of multistage image processing algorithms have been developed to do change detection in image sequence analysis. These algorithms are tailored for the purpose of moving target identification (MTI). The image processing algorithms have been coupled with a simple tracking-detection algorithm. The resulting combination of processing shows very good performance in detecting targets in simulated mosaic IR images with projected probability of false alarm less than one per hundred billion frames and the probability of detection for targets within the model approaching unity.
