The research of statistical properties of image pixel brightness has been carried out, allowing us to improve the quality of the choice of the required mathematical model. The results of the analysis of ground-based background-target videos obtained by an unmanned aerial vehicle's onboard optical-location system are presented. The requirements to the mathematical model of brightness in the ground-based noise-target environment is formulated
