To solve the problem of low stability of fusion validity measurement in existing fusion of infrared intensity and polarization images, the stability of various fusion algorithms for the distribution of fusion validity of different features was analyzed and compared by using three common fusion validity function measurement methods based on measurement distance. By calculating the frequency of the optimal fusion algorithm in difference feature amplitude interval of ten groups of images, the optimal fusion algorithms for each difference feature were obtained, and cosine similarity was obtained as a measure of fusion efficiency with high stability and more consistent with subjective observation results of the humans. The experimental results show that the cosine similarity has high stability and good matching with human vision analysis in the fusion effectiveness measurement of various fusion algorithms.
