Abstract
Nowadays, ship detection in sea-sky background is not only useful in maritime visual surveillance, but also helpful in maritime search and rescue. Since ships are salient objects in infrared images with sea-sky background, we present a novel and effective algorithm based on saliency for ship detection in this situation. Our algorithm adopts global saliency, local saliency and background prior to generate saliency maps. Ships are finally segmented in saliency maps. Our algorithm is compared with four classic salient object detection algorithms. And experimental results show our algorithm outperforms the other four algorithms in qualitative and quantitative terms.
