Paper Abstract

A ship field truthing experiment is designed and conducted in coast off Qingdao sea area. In the experiment a working boat equipped with Differential Global Position System receivers and anemometer navigating in experiment area to acquire vessel's location, length, width, type and sea surface wind speed. The ship detector based on constant false alarm rate (CFAR) is applied in the simultaneously acquired ASAR image. Ship length is retrieved from ASAR image and compared with field data. Ship's SAR imaging characteristic is analyzed based on field data and ASAR image.
