A physical dual-polarimetric model to observe man-made metallic targets at sea in dual-polarimetric coherent X-band SAR data is proposed. The model exploits the intrinsic different symmetry properties of man-made targets and sea surface and is tested over actual StripMap TerraSAR-X HH-HV and VV-VH dual-polarimetric SAR data and co-located ground truth measurements. Then, an operational physically-based filter to observe targets at sea is proposed. The filter is very attractive both in terms of detection performances and processing time. A typical SAR scene is processed in seconds by a conventional PC processor.

Abstract

A physical dual-polarimetric model to observe man-made metallic targets at sea in dual-polarimetric coherent X-band SAR data is proposed. The model exploits the intrinsic different symmetry properties of man-made targets and sea surface and is tested over actual StripMap TerraSAR-X HH-HV and VV-VH dual-polarimetric SAR data and co-located ground truth measurements. Then, an operational physically-based filter to observe targets at sea is proposed. The filter is very attractive both in terms of detection performances and processing time. A typical SAR scene is processed in seconds by a conventional PC processor.
