Object extraction from an IR image background is of great interest both to the military and the commercial sector. A convenient and popular approach to object extraction is image thresholding. In this paper, we describe a new and easy to implement approach for extracting object(s) in single frame IR images, which has many similarities to image thresholding. Both on the basis of theoretical considerations and experimental results, however, our approach appears to be noticeably more dependable than image thresholding for IR images
