Abstract
The algorithm of infrared image enhancement directly impacts on the veracity of target recognition. However, traditional histogram equalization and gray-scale transformation algorithms can't realize the enhancement of the target in the infrared image effectively. Consequently, an adaptive algorithm for infrared target enhancement has been presented. The experimental result shows that this algorithm could automatically choose the threshold of histogram segmentation according to the gray characteristic of the target. It can also increase the contrast and decrease the noise while suppressing the background. In addition, this algorithm could be used for target enhancement of other infrared images, and had small computation, especially suitable for real-time processing of infrared images.
