Paper Abstract

This work investigates the fixed-point polarimetric whitening filter (FP-PWF) with respect to ship detection based on polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery. The purposes of this work are: (i) to investigate the FP-PWF algorithm that incorporate texture, (ii) to examine the method of log-cumulants (MoLC) for shape parameter estimation associated with texture, and (iii) to assess the impact of the improved modeling and estimation on the discrepancy between specified and observed false alarm rate. A modified ship detection algorithm based on FP-PWF is proposed with improved modeling, estimation and detection performance. Experiments are performed on simulated radar ocean clutter.
