Paper Abstract

In the paper using of High Dynamic Ranging (HDR) method for SAR images enhancement is presented. A strong scatterers are presented on SAR images as wide, circle points occupied a lot of pixels. It means, that some displayed scatterers are out of image dynamic range. In results of this the details of strong scatterer can be unrecognized and some important information can be lost. The proposed method is based on known, from computer graphics, photography, etc. High Dynamic Ranging technique. Applying of this method in SAR imaging processing allows to obtain more detailed image and also can be used as a start point to another method improving quality of final image (ex. CLEAN method).
