The target-seeking processing of a moving target under dynamic platform conditions is a challengeable research field. This field involves ① how to distinguish the true movement of the target from the pseudo movement of the background image resulting from platform movement; ② reliably capturing of multiple moving targets in different space scales, reducing false alarms and missed alarms; and ③ reliably detecting and tracking against environmental interference/human interference, and the like. The moving target includes aerial targets, sea-surface targets, ground targets, and the like.
