This paper addresses the problem of SAR Tomographic (TomoSAR) imaging, allowing the detection of multiple scatterers in presence of partially correlated Gaussian clutter. TomoSAR is a multidimensional imaging technique that has proven its ability in localizing the scatterers, reconstructing the elevation profile of the structures on the ground (3D reconstruction) and estimating the temporal deformations and thermal dilations of the scene (5D reconstruction). In the literature statistical based TomoSAR reconstruction refers to a signal model where in each range-azimuth resolution cell one or more scatterers are interfering in presence of noise and clutter signals, modeled as zero-mean complex circular white Gaussian random vectors. In this paper, we propose to extend a generalized likelihood ratio test (GLRT) detector, proposed by the authors and denoted Fast-Sup-GLRT, to a different signal model, where a correlated clutter model is considered.

Abstract

This paper addresses the problem of SAR Tomographic (TomoSAR) imaging, allowing the detection of multiple scatterers in presence of partially correlated Gaussian clutter. TomoSAR is a multidimensional imaging technique that has proven its ability in localizing the scatterers, reconstructing the elevation profile of the structures on the ground (3D reconstruction) and estimating the temporal deformations and thermal dilations of the scene (5D reconstruction). In the literature statistical based TomoSAR reconstruction refers to a signal model where in each range-azimuth resolution cell one or more scatterers are interfering in presence of noise and clutter signals, modeled as zero-mean complex circular white Gaussian random vectors. In this paper, we propose to extend a generalized likelihood ratio test (GLRT) detector, proposed by the authors and denoted Fast-Sup-GLRT, to a different signal model, where a correlated clutter model is considered. Results on TerraSAR-X real data are presented.
