Abstract
Because of noise and clutter, the infrared target detection even becomes more difficult. In this paper, we present an automatic seed selection method based on an improved mountain cluster algorithm to be employed in infrared target segmentation. The original image was projected to x and y coordination firstly. Then the modified mountain clustering algorithm is employed on the projection data to obtain the cluster center which is applied as the seed point for region growing. This approach has been performed on a field infrared image. The experimental results show that the proposed method can provide satisfactory segmentation result.
