Abstract
This paper presents a practical algorithm and system for automatic detecting and tracking small targets in IR image sequences. A recursively adaptive detection is designed to improve SCR and deal with the unknown background clutter. Then the algorithm labels the candidate targets with a new method which can be done rapidly, and locks the real target based on a multi-frame concept. The system includes two processors, CoreModule and TMS320C30. They constitute a flexible multi-bus architecture which can perform the algorithm parallelly. Experiment results demonstrate that the system can detect and track low intensity small targets successfully in real time.
