This paper describes the results of a work in the field of dynamic scene analysis and more specifically dealing with target tracking from infrared imagery. In order to meet the constraints of future real systems, we developped an approach based on the matching of a discrete model of the mobile relying on unsophisticated segmentation features. After having specified a model of regions in the image, based on physical considerations relative to infrared imagery, we describe a cooperative segmentation algorithm using both region growing and points of interest, and the tracking algorithm capable of adjusting to partial occlusions of the target during a given operational scenario. At last, the limitations of our algorithm are discussed.
