Paper Abstract

Recent I.R. image analysis techniques can be used to enhance the accuracy of aircraft navigation systems. A scene matching is one of the most promising techniques that can be combined with an Inertial Navigation System to give very high accuracy autonomous navigation. Apars segments detection using an optimal edge operator is used to selected points in a I.R. image. Matching of reference map with "apars" is achieved by hypotheses prediction and evaluation algorithm which include a Kalman estimation for image-to-map transformation refinements.
