Abstract

An efficient automatic detection strategy for aerial moving targets in airborne forward-looking infrared (FLIR) imagery is presented in this paper. Airborne cameras induce a global motion over all objects in the image, that invalidates motion-based segmentation techniques for static cameras. To overcome this drawback, previous works compensate the camera ego-motion. However, this approach is too much dependent on the quality of the ego-motion compensation, tending towards an over-detection. In this work, the proposed strategy estimates a robust motion vector field, free of erroneous vectors. Motion vectors are classified into different independent moving objects, corresponding to background objects and aerial targets. The aerial targets are directly segmented using their associated motion vectors. This detection strategy has a low computational cost, since no compensation process or motion-based technique needs to be applied. Excellent results have been obtained over real FLIR sequences.
