One of the basic functions of SAR images exploitation system is the detection of man-made objects. The perfor-mance of object detection is strongly limited by perfor-mance of sementation modules. This paper presents a detection paradigm composed of an adaptive segmentation algorithm based on a priori knowledge of objects followed by a top-down hierarchical detection process that generates and evaluates object hypotheses. Shadow information and inter-object relationships can be added to the knowledge base to improve performance over that of a statistical detector based only on the attributes of individual objects.
