Abstract: Due to latest advancements in the field of remote sensing, it becomes easier to acquire high quality images by the use of various satellites along with the sensing components. But the massive quantity of data poses a challenging issue to store and effectively transmit the remote sensing images. Therefore, image compression techniques can be utilized to process remote sensing images. In this aspect, vector quantization (VQ) can be employed for image compression and the widely applied VQ approach is Linde–Buzo–Gray (LBG) which creates a local optimum codebook for image construction. The process of constructing the codebook can be treated as the optimization issue and the metaheuristic algorithms can be utilized for resolving it. With this motivation, this article presents an intelligent satin bowerbird optimizer based compression technique (ISBO-CT) for remote sensing images. The goal of the ISBO-CT technique is to proficiently compress the remote sensing images by the effective design of codebook. Besides, the ISBO-CT technique makes use of satin bowerbird optimizer (SBO) with LBG approach is employed. The design of SBO algorithm for remote sensing image compression depicts the novelty of the work. To showcase the enhanced efficiency of ISBO-CT approach, an extensive range of simulations were applied and the outcomes reported the optimum performance of ISBO-CT technique related to the recent state of art image compression approaches.

With the advancement of sensor technologies, the spectral and spatial resolutions of remote sensing images (RSI) are enhancing considerably, which improves the relevance of RSI [1]. But there is cost of massive number of data as the data transmission and storage of on-board equipment are extremely complex. For mitigating this problem, a compression technique using higher coding performances and lower difficulty is needed. Generally, the compression of RSI includes any classical compression systems [2]. These compression systems could efficiently compress natural images since the facts of natural image was frequently constrained. Afterward, the discrete wavelet transforms (DWT), a compact representation could be attained. But, in comparison to natural images, RSI has its individual characteristic features. Usually, they contain a massive amount of ground objects that results in a great amount of details, like outlines of small targets, geometric information, edge, and texture information [3]. Consequently, it is hard to attain a higher coding performance to RSI since the coefficient of higher frequency sub-bands are still larger afterward the DWT. Recently, compression systems developed especially for RSI have been presented [4,5]. These compression systems compress RSI from various factors, like sparse representation.

On the other hand, lossy compression results in data loss because of the removal of less important specifics from the images. It leads to a higher compression ratio (CR) with loss of quality to some extent [6]. Vector quantization (VQ) is a widely used lossy compression method for images. VQ is widespread because it is easier to execute and attains improved compression efficacy [7,8]. The image compression in VQ has been achieved by mapping a data set, thus minimalizing the amount of bits required to determine the novel information, which leads to reducing transmission time and memory usage. Initially, VQ segment the input image to sub input block or smaller blocks image, and all the blocks are assigned to the codeword of the codebooks to find out the reproduction vectors. This process is called encoded, where the inverse method of recreating the compressed image is called decoding. In the work, various researches have been carried out for improving the efficacy of VQ [9]. One of the most important problems in VQ is the generation of an optimum codebook that decreases the error among the decompressed and the compressed images. VQ methods consist of crisp and fuzzy models. The crisp VQ is based on complex decision-making process and has sensitive for initializing the codebook. The Linde–Buzo–Gray (LBG) approach is mainly employed for generating the codebook that initiates the model using a smaller-sized codebook and further improves the splitting method. The outcomes of the LBG could be improved by adding utility measures at the time of the learning [10].

Jifara et al. [11] presented a new technique of lossy hyperspectral image compression technique with online learning dictionary. A spectral dictionary which is learned from sparse coding model is applied for representing the respective materials. In the perception of sparse coding, learning a sparse dictionary can accomplish effective outcome of data decorrelation. Chen et al. [12] conducted research on effect of compression on RSI classification and proposed a methodology for estimating the RSI classification performance-based fractal analyses. Multi-scale feature removal was implemented and various kernel learning approaches is introduced consequently.

In [13], three distinct methodologies are presented for the compression of hyper-spectral, multi-spectral, and hyperspectral sounder data. The proposed methodologies are dissimilar in the type and number of heuristics utilized to obtain the optimum band reordering. Ge et al. [14] examine representation from pre-trained convolutional neural networks (CNN) for higher-resolution RSI retrieval. CNN representation in GoogLeNet, AlexNet, VGGM, and VGG16 are transmitted initially to higher-resolution RSI, and subsequently, CNN feature is removed through 2 methods. Initially, extract the output of higher-level layer straightforwardly. Next, aggregate the output of mid-level layer through average pooling by using distinct pooling areas.

Li et al. [15] introduced a hybrid 2D-burrows wheeler transform (BWT) with DWT for strong image compression model. The presented method consists of image compression with 2D-DWT, 2D-BWT to improve coefficient selection, transformation. Next, linear vector quantization (LVQ) is presented to encode the wavelet coefficient. DWT is employed for facilitating higher quality compression images and BWT was applied for improving the transformation method.

2.2 SBO Based Codebook Construction

In accordance with lifestyle of satin bower-bird, males require for building nests for attracting females and simulate their offspring. The place of nest defines their attraction to females. During the procedure of nesting, males damage the nests created by another male. Every male provides for learning in the optimum nests. For summarizing, the SBO technique is subsequent steps [17]. The amount of individual nests are arbitrarily created amongst the upper as well as lower bounds. All nests are D dimension vectors. The dimensional of parameter D is similar to the amount of parameters needed for solving the optimized issue. The nests created by males are attractiveness probability that defines if female is attracted to them. The flowchart of SBO algorithm is offered in Fig. 2. The maximum probability, the simpler is attracted females. The probability equation as:

Several intelligent techniques implement an elite approach that maintains the place as well as fitness of optimum individuals from all iterations of the technique. To the SBO technique, the amount of nests created as male improves, the skill of nest creating also enhances. The knowledgeable male is optimum at constructing attractive nests. During all iterations, one of the skilled males was maintained, and another male study in one of the knowledgeable birds. An elite hero bird affected by another male nest.

Naturally, if male is busy creating the bower on ground, it can be attacked by another animal or totally forgotten. During several analyses, stronger males take material in weaker males, or same damage its bowers. So, last of all cycles of the technique, arbitrary variations were implemented with specific probability. This procedure assumes that arbitrary alters were executed to

The overall process involved in the ISBO-CT technique is given as follows.

• In the primary stage, the parameter initialized takes place in which the codebook created by LBG technique was assigned to primary initial solution (for instance, satin bowerbirds) but the rest of primary solutions were arbitrarily generated. All the solutions signify the codebook of Nc codeword. Also, the initialized of SBO occurs.

• Secondary stage, the existing optimum solution was chosen by calculating the fitness of all places and maximal fitness place was recognized as optimum one.

• In the tertiary step, novel solutions were created from the bowerbird mutation procedure.
