Video analytics plays an important role in a wide variety of defense-, monitoring- and surveillance-related systems for air and ground environments. In this context, multispectral video processing is attracting increased interest in recent years, due in part to technological advances in video capture. Compared with monochromatic video, multispectral video offers better spectral resolution, and different bands of multispectral video streams can enhance video analytics capabilities in different ways. For example, the infrared bands can provide better separation of shadows from objects, and improved spatial resolution in scenes that are impaired by fog or haze [16].
