With the latest advances in image sensor technology, cameras are able to generate video with tens of megapixels per frame. These high resolution videos streams offer great potential to be used in the surveillance domain. For ground based systems, gigapixel streams are already used with great effect as illustrated by the ICME 2019 crowd counting...

Automatic detection and tracking of maritime targets in imagery can greatly increase situation awareness on naval vessels. Various methods for detection and tracking have been proposed so far, both for reasoning as well as for learning approaches. Learning approaches have the promise to outperform reasoning approaches. They typically detect...

Camera systems are widely used for surveillance in the security and defense domains. The main advantages of camera systems are their high resolution, their ease of use, and the fact that optical imagery is easy to interpret for human operators. However, particularly when considering application in the defense domain, cameras have some...

We present a study of border surveillance systems for automatic threat estimation. The surveillance systems should allow border control operators to be triggered in time so that adequate responses are possible. Examples of threats are smuggling, possibly by using small vessels, cars or drones, and threats caused by unwanted persons (e.g....

The Royal Netherlands Navy operates a low-frequency active sonar consisting of a combination of a towed sonar source and receiver array in order to detect and classify objects underwater. The operation involves transmitting high power underwater sound towards an object and detecting the echo reflected by the object. Operating a towed source at...

We present a 220 GHz imaging radar prototype that has been developed in the European Defense Agency (EDA) project TIPPSI. The purpose of the development was to demonstrate short-range high-resolution 3D imaging for security applications at checkpoints, and to guide the development of stand-off real-time millimeter wave and sub-millimeter wave...

In the paper we present our Range-IT prototype, which is a 3D depth camera based electronic travel aid (ETA) to assist visually impaired people in finding out detailed information of surrounding objects. In addition to detecting indoor obstacles and identifying several objects of interest (e.g., walls, open doors and stairs) up to 7 meters, the...

In the field of security and defense, it is extremely important to reliably detect moving objects, such as cars, ships, drones and missiles. Detection and analysis of moving objects in cameras near borders could be helpful to reduce illicit trading, drug trafficking, irregular border crossing, trafficking in human beings and smuggling. Many...

The presented paper addresses the problem of detecting and tracking moving objects for autonomous cargo handling in port terminals using a perception system which input data is a single layer laser scanner. A computationally low cost and robust Detection and Tracking Moving Objects (DATMO) algorithm is presented to be used in autonomous guided...

Visual and infrared imagery is degraded by turbulence caused by atmospheric conditions. Because the degradation gets worse for longer distances, turbulence especially hampers long range observation. At sea this turbulence affects classification and identification of ships and other objects. State of the art software based processing algorithms...

Moving object detection in urban scenes is important for the guidance of autonomous vehicles, robot navigation, and monitoring. In this paper moving objects are automatically detected using three sequential frames and tracked over a longer period. To this extend we modify the plane+parallax, fundamental matrix, and trifocal tensor algorithms to...

The current state of the art in electro-optics provides systems with high image quality for associated prices and less expensive systems with subsequent lower performance. This keynote will expound how image processing enables to obtain high quality imagery while utilizing affordable system components. Furthermore, where conventional high-end EO...

Asymmetric threat assessment from military platforms, including early detection and classification by electro-optical means, is a complicated matter. These threats can be for instance explosives-packed rubber boats, minecarrying swimmers and divers in a marine environment or terrorists, improvised explosive devices and small vehicles in land or...

Small drifting objects can be a big threat to surface ships, especially when the objects are explosion hazards like sea mines that have become detached from their moorings. Timely detection of such objects is crucial in order to be able to perform adequate evasive manoeuvres. However, the vertical position of drifting mines is a serious...

In this paper a texture feature coding method to be applied to high-resolution 3D radar images in order to improve target detection is developed. An automatic method for image segmentation based on texture features is proposed. The method has been able to automatically detect weak targets which failed to be detected with intensity based...

Shadow detection is an important aspect of foreground/ background classification. Many techniques exist, most of them assuming that casting a shadow results only in a change in intensity and no change in color. In this paper we show that in most practical indoor and outdoor situations there will also be a color shift. We propose an algorithm for...

Shadow detection is an important aspect of foreground/background classification. Many techniques exist, most of them assuming that only the intensity changes under shadow. In this paper we show that in most practical indoor and outdoor situations there will also be a color shift. We propose an algorithm for estimating this color shift from the...

This paper presents an algorithm that can be used to fuse two sets of contacts, e.g. as observed by two active sonar systems. The goal is to keep a good probability of detection, without doubling the number of false alarms after combining both data sets. We present both the theoretical motivation of the algorithm, as well as simulations that...

Terrain classification is an important problem that still remains to be solved for off-road autonomous robot vehicle guidance. Often, obstacle detection systems are used which cannot distinguish between solid obstacles such as rocks or soft obstacles such as tall patches of grass. Terrain classification is needed to prevent that the robot is...
