Improved electro-optical target detection in a natural fractal environment. Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • ABSTRACT Pictures photographed by optical and electro-optical systems often suffer from distortion caused by atmospheric disturbance, electrical noise and optical aberration introduced by the imaging system. In this paper, we suggest a method to restore pictures of natural scenes, under the assumption that they can be characterized as two-dimensional representations of fractional Brownian Motion (to be called fractal images). In this paper we synthesize fractal images, find ways to characterize their fractal dimension, and develop a …
