Abstract

In this Letter we propose an adaptive scene-based nonuniformity correction method for fixed-pattern noise removal in imaging arrays. It is based on the minimization of the total variation of the estimated irradiance, and the resulting function is optimized by an isotropic total variation approach making use of an alternating minimization strategy. The proposed method provides enhanced results when applied to a diverse set of real IR imagery, accurately estimating the nonunifomity parameters of each detector in the focal-plane array at a fast convergence rate, while also forming fewer ghosting artifacts.
