Abstract

This paper deals with point target detection in infrared images of the sky for which there are local variations of the gray level mean value. We show that considering a simple image model with the gray level mean value varying as a linear or a quadratic function of the pixel coordinates can improve mixed segmentation–detection performance in comparison to homogeneous model-based approaches.
