UAV has been widely used in detecting targets, but the image transmission of UAV still faces the problems of distortion and frame loss. Most image compression methods based on deep learning are lossy compression, and lossy compression reduces image quality in exchange for higher compression ratio. In order to improve the quality of the region of interest (ROI) in the reconstructed image with a certain bit rate, an importance map extraction module is embedded in the encoder, and the importance map is generated by extracting the output features of the last layer of the encoder. Finally, the mask is generated to guide the efficient allocation of bit rate in the process of drop coding. At the same time, a decoder enhancement module is embedded in the decoder output to predict the high frequency components in the reconstructed image and improve the quality of the reconstructed image by enhancing the details in the reconstructed image. The experimental results show that the proposed method is superior to the comparison method when multi-scale structural similarity (MS-SSIM) is used as the evaluation index, and the proposed method achieves better visual perception quality.
