Abstract
This paper presents the investigation and the implementation of the zonal filtering algorithm in order to improve the performance of the blob target detection system. Because the zonal filtering method will enhance the cold and hot regions, those cold and hot regions in the FLIR image are most likely the potential target areas. Also, this filter can be used to compress the wide global scene dynamic range while preserving local area contrast. The local area contrast is a good feature for discriminating target areas from background areas. The experimental results of the zonal filter will be shown.
