Abstract. Modern technologies allow you to create a new generation of optical-electronic systems that, under normal conditions, allow you to solve problems of detection, tracking and recognition in automatic mode with high efficiency. However, in bad weather conditions, in the presence of deliberate interference, the quality of solving these problems drops sharply. This is due to the decrease in the quality of the resulting images and a decrease in the contrast of the object of interest. One of the ways to increase the information content of the obtained images, as well as increase the contrast is their integration, which involves the sharing of channels of the infrared and visible bands. The integration algorithms allow combining the images of the visible and infrared ranges into one resultant one, which has a positive effect on the increase in the contrast of the object against the background. The paper substantiates the possibility of using image aggregation to increase the efficiency of the correlation tracking system of an object of interest with a low level of contrast in the visible and infrared spectral ranges in a complex background and the presence of interference. The simulation results are presented, which indicate an increase in the resultant contrast and quality of the correlation algorithm of automatic tracking, taking into account the integration.

Keywords: correlation function, image aggregation, background-target environment, correlation-extreme tracking system, contrast.
