Paper Abstract

Segmentation of targets embedded in clutter obtained by IR imaging sensors is one of the challenging problems in automatic target recognition (ATR). In this paper a new texture-based segmentation technique is presented that uses the statistics of 2D wavelet decomposition components of the lcoal 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.
