Due to the complex signal-dependent nature of the speckle in SAR image, it is more reasonable to use different speckle descriptions and despeckling filters for different kinds of regions. A multi-description despeckling approach is presented in this paper. Based on the local statistics, the x2 test is introduced to segment the SAR image into the Gamma-distributed homogeneous regions and the more fluctuant heterogeneous regions. Then a MAP filter is used in the homogeneous regions, and a modified median filter is utilized in the heterogeneous regions. X-band airborne SAR image and synthetic image are used for illustration and comparison.
