Paper Abstract

A key question in SAR-aided search is the relative utility of L-Band versus P-Band data. A study has been undertaken using target data collected by the NASA Search and Rescue Mission. Comparisons are made based on the ability to detect downed aircraft by use of several polarimetry-based automatic detection techniques developed by the NASA Search and Rescue Mission. Results obtained so far from this study are presented in the paper.
