Abstract
This paper considers the problem of clutter segmentation in fully polarimetric, high-resolution, synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery. The goal of segmentation is to partition an image into regions of homogeneous terrain types (grass regions, tree regions, roads, etc.). Three approaches to segmentation are examined: (1) the optimal polarimetric classifier, (2) the optimal normalized polarimetric classifier, and (3) the polarimetric whitening filter (PWF) classifier. Segmentation performance results are presented for typical high-resolution, polarimetric SAR data gathered by the Lincoln Laboratory 35-GHz airborne sensor.
