Abstract. In this paper, we present a method called MOD-
EEP (Motion-based Object DEtection and Estimation of
Pose) to detect independently moving objects (IMOs) in
forward-looking infrared (FLIR) image sequences taken from
an airborne, moving platform. Ego-motion effects are re-
moved through a robust multi-scale affine image registra-
tion process. Thereafter, areas with residual motion indicate
potential object activity. These areas are detected, refined
and selected using a Bayesian classifier. The resulting re-
gions are clustered into pairs such that each pair represents
one object's front and rear end. Using motion and scene
knowledge, we estimate object pose and establish a region
