Paper Abstract

In this paper, a new small target detection approach based on the analysis of image background texture is presented. Through multi-scale wavelet decomposition of background textures and local energy calculation, feature vectors of each pixel is obtained. According to these feature vectors, a relative distance image corresponding to the features can be derived, and target detection can be performed on this distance image. The histogram of distance image is employed for automatic selection of threshold value. Experiments show that this approach can achieve quite satisfactory results.
