Abstract : The implementation of a method for registration of digital images recorded by a 8-12 micron Forward-Looking Infrared (FLIR) camera is described. The software runs independently of commercial software packages under the Silicon Graphics IRIX 5.3 environment that is used to create and store the images as movies. It is capable of registering and drift compensating entire movies -- filtering against any number of reference images -- in one step in less than one second per frame per reference image, each of which is approximately 10,000 pixels. The package was written in C, and is herein described in detail from both methodology and implementation perspectives.
