Abstract

We propose an improved algorithm based on fractal dimension and third-order characterization to detect dim target with cluttered background in an infrared (IR) image. We also illustrate the performance and efficiency comparisons between the presented algorithm and the traditional fractal detection method on real IR images. The experimental results show that the proposed algorithm is robust and efficient for IR dim target detection.
