Evaluation and tuning of a SAR detector using sparse-array spotlight mode simulations


Journal Article

We describe a method of tuning a simple detection process of stationary targets in SAR images. The tuning metric accounts for the squared-error performance of prescient estimators of target location and reflectivity. The efficiencies of these prescient estimators are compared to their Cramér Rao bounds (CRBs). The off-line tuning is performed by collecting statistics of scatterer estimation in SAR images created using sparse-array spotlight mode simulations. © 2006 IEEE.
