This paper describes new methods applied to the problem of target identification in complex maritime scenes. The algorithm described here automatically identifies rigid objects moving in a maritime scene. The methods for target identification proposed here are based on the change in statistical descriptors of image segments and on axis projections of the difference image. Results from this stage of processing are passed to a decision maker which determines the resulting regions of interest in the image. Different sequences of maritime scenes were passed to the algorithm and results show that it was capable of identifying most of the rigid objects moving in the scenes despite the variation of the scenes
