Title: IDENTIFYING TARGETS WITHIN IMAGES
Abstract:
Methods of detecting and/or identifying an artificial target within an image are provided. These methods comprise: applying to a region of the image a primary classification algorithm for performing a feature extraction of the image region, the primary classification algorithm being based on a spectral profile defined by one or more spectral signatures with one or more features in atleast part of the infrared spectrum; obtaining a relation between the extracted features of the image region and the spectral profile; verifying whether a level of confidence of the obtained relation between the extracted features and the spectral profileis higher than a first predetermined confirmation level; and, in case of positive (or true) result of said verification, determining that the image region corresponds to artificial target to be detected, thereby obtaining a confirmed artificial target. Systems and computer programs are also provided that are suitable for performing said methods.
