  • Abstract. The effect of imagery wavelength on the agreement level between various image metrics and human detection performance of targets embedded in natural images is addressed. Three specially designed psychophysical experiments were conducted to record human detection performance of targets embedded in natural infrared images (3 to 5 and 8 to 12 μm) and in natural images taken in the visual region of the spectrum. The image metrics used were designed to imitate some of the most important human perceptual cues …
