Nowadays, statistical methods are widely used in different aspects of real-time Remote Sensing (RS) in underwater, ground-based, aerial and satellite applications. Statistical approaches for efficient and high performance computing in remote sensing image and video processing for real-time monitoring and surveillance are now a hot topic of research. In this special issue, the aim is to cover new advances of real-time statistical image and video processing methods in which heuristic approaches and soft computing (e.g., nature/bio-inspired optimization, neural network (fully heuristic approaches), fuzzy logic and other aspects of non-statistical artificial intelligence) are not used.
Real-time applications of statistical image and video processing involve many different challenging problems including acoustic imaging, optical sensors and passive/active radar imaging. This special issue is aimed at providing new advances of real-time statistical image and video processing in applications such as infrared imaging, multi-and hyper-spectral imaging, SAR images and Video SAR, and spectral videos. We cordially invite researchers working in these areas to make a contribution to this special issue.


The topics of interest include:

  • Real-Time RS Image and Video Compression
  • Real-Time RS Image and Video Security
  • Real-Time RS Image and Video Communications with Data Hiding
  • Conceptualization of Real-Time RS Videos
  • Real-Time RS Image Super-resolution
  • Real-Time RS Applications of Detection and Estimation Theory
  • Real-Time RS Image Clustering and Classification
  • Real-Time Object Detection and Tracking in RS Videos
  • Combination of Statistics and Multi-resolution Transforms for Real-Time RS Image Processing
