Paper Abstract

We give an overview of some R&D projects in SAR imagery at Lockheed Martin Canada. These projects are motivated by airborne surveillance applications such as the landmass and coastal surveillance missions of the Canadian CP-140 (Aurora) aircraft. The activities reviewed here are: (1) R&D supports to CP-140 Spotlight SAR upgrade, (2) fast multiresolution prescreening filter for CFAR detection, (3) comparison of traditional and wavelet-based speckle filters and (4) high-level ship classification in high-resolution SAR imagery.
