Abstract
This paper presents a method for ship target detecting in complex background. It aims at solving two difficulties in detection. The first one is that the ships docking in-shore cannot be segmented because of its gray level similarity to land, and the second is that the ships linked side by side cannot be easily located as separate correct target. The first one is solved by extracting water region firstly by measure of harbor-template matching. In order to reduce the impact of angle difference which leads to error, we update the template by the corresponding angle calculated recur to line feature. Then matching fine with the updated template to extract water region wholly in which the segment is effective. For the second difficulty, the smallest minimum bounding rectangle (SMBR) of the segmented areas are obtained by contour tracing, and the areas are projected to the two different directions of its SMBR, then the projection curves are acquired. If the ships are linking together, the peak-valley-peak pattern will exist in the projection curve and the valley-point indicates the ships' connection position. Then the ships can be separated by cutting the area at connection position along the projection direction. The experiment results verify the efficiency and accuracy of our method.
