The performance of infrared focal plane array (IRFPA) is known to be affected by the presence of spatial fixed pattern noise (FPN) that is superimposed on the true image. Scene-based nonuniformity correction (NUC) algorithms are widely concerned since they only need the readout infrared data captured by the imaging system during its normal operation. A novel adaptive NUC algorithm is proposed using the sparse prior that when derivative filters are applied to infrared images, the filter outputs tends to be sparse. A change detection module based on results of derivative filters is introduced to avoid stationary object being learned into the background, so the ghosting artifact is eliminated effectively. The performance of the new algorithm is evaluated with both real and simulated imagery.
