23 October 1997 New nonlinear speckle and noise-reduction algorithm
Author Affiliations +
This new paper presents a nonlinear filtering technique for speckle noise reduction when the statistical clutter model is known. It is assumed that the noise or image statistical contributions are not known. The method has been successfully used for speckle noise reduction on electro-optical and SAR images for pre-filtering in multi-sensor image registration applications. A detailed software description of this speckle and noise reduction algorithm is also presented.
