Abstract

In the framework of deep learning for synthetic aperture radar (SAR) speckle reduction, the methods presented in the literature mainly focus on the definition of new architectures and cost functions for better catching and preserving the properties of a real SAR image. The achieved results are interesting and promising but with many left open issues. The main critical problem, shared by all the methods, is the construction of a training dataset. This is due to the lack of a noise-free reference. In this work, a comparison among different training approaches (synthetic, multitemporal, and hybrid) is carried out in order to analyze their benefits and drawbacks. Four convolutional neural network (CNN)-based methods have been trained with the three different datasets for their assessment. Results on real SAR images have been carried out showing the peculiarities of each training approach.
