Paper Abstract

This paper describes a fast processing algorithm developed in order to extract sea surfaces' features from radar images. Based on a parametrial estimation, this algorithm allows real time applications by giving a continuous stream of characteristic parameters such as the wavelength and the direction of the current. In addition to its high processing speed, the proposed algorithm, by taking into account the intrinsic polar coordinates of the radar, cancels the effect of distortion introduced into the signal spectrum by a relatively slow radar rotation speed.
