The synthetic aperture radr (SAR) returns from a linear distribution of scatterers are simulated and processed in order to estimate the reflectivity coefficients of the ground. An original expression of this estimate is given, which establishes the relation between the terms of signal and noise. Both are compared. One application of this formulation consists of detecting a surface ship wake on a complex SAR image. A smoothing is first accomplished on the complex image. The choice of the integration area is determined by the preceding mathematical formulation. Then a differential filter is applied, and results are shown for two parts of the wake.
