Small infrared target detection often plays an important role, even a bottleneck, in lots of military and civil infrared application fields. In this paper, a brief description on small infrared target detection was given firstly. Then, a detail overview on the present kinds of small infrared target detection algorithms was given, including the principle and character of the algorithms. Finally, the perspective of small infrared targets detection technology was predicted.
