Paper Abstract

In this paper, a new small target detection approach which is based on the analysis of image background texture is presented, and Gaussian-Markov random field (GMRF) is chosen as texture model. Texture features can be obtained from the least square error estimation of GMRF parameters. Image is divided into non-overlapped blocks, and feature vector is obtained for each block. Using the normalized Euclidean distance of feature vectors as a measure of the difference of textures, target detection can be performed in a coarse to fine procedure according to the difference of features and approximation error.
