We present a near-real-time visual-processing approach for automatic airborne target detection and classification. Detection is based on fast and robust background modeling and shape extraction, while recognition of target classes is based on shape and texture-fused querying on a-priori built real datasets. The presented approach can be used in defense and surveillance scenarios where passive detection capabilities are preferred (or required) over a secured area or protected zone.
