Paper Abstract

We consider the problems of speckle removal in radar images. The proposed filtering techniques make use of local DCT denoising based on adaptive thresholding or homomorphic transformation. Two-stage DT denoising procedure in combination with local statistic filtering are also introduced and analyzed. The effectiveness of the proposed speckle removal algorithms is demonstrated by means of numerical simulations.
