Many approaches to target recognition on SAR images employ model-based techniques. These systems incorporate computationally intensive operations such as large database probing or complex 3D renderings that are used to produce simulations that are compared against unknown targets. These operations would achieve a significant improvement in speed performance if the target poses were known in advance. A study that addresses the problem of estimating the poses of vehicles in SAR images is reported in this paper. A pose estimation algorithm suite is proposed that is based on a set of partially independent criteria. A statistical analysis of the performance obtained by employing the established criteria, both individually and in combination, is also conducted and the results are comparatively discussed.
