Abstract. Random noise in aerial and satellite images is one of the factors, decreasing their quality. The noise level assessment in images is paid not enough attention. The method of numerical estimation of random image noise is considered. The object of the study is the image noise estimating method, based on harmonic analysis. The capability of using this method for aerial and satellite image quality assessment is considered. The results of the algorithm testing on model data and on real satellite images with different terrain surfaces are carried out. The accuracy estimating results for calculating the root-mean-square deviation (RMS) of random image noise by the harmonic analysis method are shown.
