We describe an approach for improving the robustness to misregistration of pixel-wise anomalous change detection (ACD) algorithms. The aim of ACD is to distinguish actual anomalous changes from the irrelevant incidental differences that occur throughout the scene. For such change detection to be effective, it is important that corresponding pixels in the two images of interest correspond to the same location in the scene. Indeed, one of the most confounding sources of incidental differences is the inevitable imprecision in the coregistration of the two images. We address this with small local adjustments to the coregistration which leads to a modified misregistration-insensitive measure of anomalousness. Several variants are considered, and the resulting performance improvements are evaluated using both real and simulated changes, and real and simulated misregistration.
