Abstract
Navy infrared search and track (IRST) systems aim at detecting long range airborne targets closing the naval unit at low altitude above the sea surface.1 The target signal is a 2-D pulse of small spatial extent and is well approximated by the sensor point spread function (PSF) further, the signal to clutter ratio (SCR) is usually very low and detection cannot be performed on a single frame. Multiple frame detection algorithms are therefore used to improve the detection probability.
