Paper Abstract

This paper introduces a novel approach for target detection in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery utilizing 3-D morphological filtering. The basic concepts in the 3-D morphology are described. The utilization of 3-D filtering to extract distinctive vehicle signatures from a SAR image is presented. A working detection system utilizing these techniques is described. A standard detection system is described and its performance compared to that of the system utilizing 3-D morphological filtering.
