Infrared images are a specific source of information. Perception and interpretation of the infrared image greatly depends on thermal properties of observed object and surrounding scenery. The most effective solution for enhancing infrared images are digital image processing mechanisms implemented in the camera or applied after image registration. The paper evaluates effectiveness of a hardware implementation of the infrared image enhancing algorithm in a digital data processing system. The
