Paper Abstract

The sea background often fluctuates violently and has a low contrast with the target, which brings difficulties in detecting the infrared maritime targets. To solve this problem, the mixture Gaussian background modeling for sea background in the Fourier domain (FGMM) was proposed. First, the mixture Gaussian background model was constructed for the amplitude spectrum sequence at each frequency point. Second, the amplitude spectrum of the test frame was compared with the mixture Gaussian background model to separate the background and foreground frequency points. And the parameters of each Gaussian distribution were updated to adapt to the change of seawater. Also, the two features of the neighborhood amplitude spectrum contrast and the information entropy of local amplitude spectrum were fused into the mixture Gaussian background model to get the final detection results. Experimental results showed that the proposed method has good effects in suppressing the seawater and detecting the targets. Moreover, compared with the traditional spatial mixture Gaussian background modeling algorithm, its performance has been significantly improved.
