In this work an edge detector for man made structures within Spotlight Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Images is proposed. The algorithm processes both real and imaginary parts of the data and so it is able to fully exploit the acquired image, being optimal from the information theory point of view. The detector has been tested on Cosmo-SKYMED (CSK) Spotlight image and compared to other single image edge detectors, showing interesting and promising results.

Abstract

In this work an edge detector for man made structures within Spotlight Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Images is proposed. The algorithm processes both real and imaginary parts of the data and so it is able to fully exploit the acquired image, being optimal from the information theory point of view. The detector has been tested on Cosmo-SKYMED (CSK) Spotlight image and compared to other single image edge detectors, showing interesting and promising results.
