Article Preview

The paper presents some methods to evaluate a thermal signature acquired with a thermal camera from some targets in marine background. Using a simulation interface made in MAVIIS 1,5 [ and with the ImageJ [ analysis software, the authors reveal the dependence between the atmospheric pollution, geometrical and radiometric characteristics of the targets and their backgrounds used during the sea surface detection, and the system performance of the thermal camera sensor.
