22 December 1997 Vector quantization of raw polarimetric SAR data by using their statistical properties
Author Affiliations +
Satellite radar imaging requires the transmission of a huge amount of data, since the image reconstruction can not usually be directly accomplished on board. A compression scheme is therefore needed. The current image resolutions do not allow lossless type of coding. The statistical properties of the signal are besides often discarded. However, the correlation of this signal can be exploited in order to increase the compression algorithms performances. This paper shows compression techniques examples and the contribution of the statistical properties of the signal for compression purpose.
