Paper Abstract

Ship detection is an important application of SAR imagery. In this paper, a new discrimination method based on morphological filter and the co-pol phase difference of the plarimetric SAR is provided. The parameter of co-pol phase difference does not only indicate targets mechanism, but also can be extracted easily from HH channel and VV channel of plarimetric SAR. The application based on the AIRSAR data shows that the new method is effective to discriminate the false alarms in ship detection.
