Abstract

An efficient target detection algorithm for detecting moving targets in infrared imagery using spatiotemporal information is presented. The output of the spatial processing serves as input to the temporal stage in a layered manner. The spatial information is obtained using joint space–spatial-frequency distribution and Rényi entropy. Temporal information is incorporated using background subtraction. By utilizing both spatial and temporal information, it is observed that the proposed method can achieve both high detection and a low false-alarm rate. The method is validated with experimentally generated data consisting of a variety of moving targets. Experimental results demonstrate a high value of F-measure for the proposed algorithm.
