<p>An algorithm for detecting moving targets by imaging sensors and estimating their trajectories is proposed. The algorithm is based on directional filtering in the frequency domain, using a bank of filters for all possible target directions. The directional filtering effectively integrates the target signal, resulting in an improved signal-to-noise ratio. Working in the frequency domain facilitates a considerable reduction in computational requirements compared to time-domain algorithms. The algorithm is described in detail, and its false alarm and detection probabilities are analyzed.</p>
