In a current study of environmental information, it is important to detect the particular object from environmental h a g s under various conditions for security such as navigation system of ships. bird-watching for the prevention of various damages, invaders check and human rescue in the marine casualty. This paper deals with the image processing techniques for the detection of the rescue target as a particular object from environmental images When a marine casually occurs, the detection of

It is p d i e d , however, that human eyes sometimes loses ifs sight and the ability of the detection faUs down owing to the long tlight and a nasty weather. For a practical purpose of the prompt rescue of human Li fe, the development of the searching support system in place of human eyes is surely required. To realize a new type searching system for the detection of the rescue target, the development of new type image processing techniques in real time manner i s undoubtedly important. At the Slst step o f our study, we attempt to develop image processing techniques, in order to detect accurately the rescue target under various conditions.
