A new approach is proposed to construct a multichannel filter for detecting small-size targets in images recorded by a matrix photodetector. For estimating the pulse response of each channel of the filter, the set of experimentally obtained images of targets having different locations with respect to photodetector cells is divided into several subsets, which are used as reference elements in calculating the pulse response of the filter. Experimental data are presented, which demonstrate appreciable reduction of the probability of missing the targets in images subjected to processing with a filter constructed by the proposed method.
