A real-time image defogging processing method based on FPGA is proposed to increase low-contrast of the aerial images in foggy vision conditions. According to the high similarity of the contiguous frame histogram in video image, the histogram equalization algorithm is improved to enhance the image contrast. The median filter algorithm is used to eliminate the noise of the image. The experimental results demonstrate that the method can efficiently enhance the contrast, strengthen the detail and

Simultaneously the method satisfies the real-time processing requirement of aerial video images, which has direct applications to the problem of poor visibility conditions.
