Clutter rejection through edge integration

A device and method for performing clutter rejection through edge integration. The invention uses optical flow estimation to produce target centering information which is used to control an image source so that a detected moving target is maintained in the center of an image containing the target and accompanying clutter while continuous, real-time integration of the target edges is performed. The output image produced contains an enhanced target and the target to clutter ratio is, therefore, enhanced.
