Paper Abstract

We present here an algorithm which performs radar cross-section estimation by using techniques based on simulated annealing. Standard simulated annealing approaches to image restoration attempt to categorize each image element as belonging to one of a small number of predefined image states or values. This is restrictive for tasks such as radar cross-section estimation and we present here an algorithm which is capable of producing a real-valued output. This is achieved by introducing an edge detection stage into the simulated annealing process. The action of the annealing algorithm may be viewed as a filter which adapts to local image structure. We present results which demonstrate this behavior and in so doing allow us to estimate the residual noise levels we might expect.
