We propose to model satellite and aerial images using a probabilistic approach. We show how the properties of these images, such as scale invariance, rotational invariance and spatial adaptivity lead to a new general model which aims to describe a broad range of natural images. The complex wavelet transform initially proposed by Kingsbury is a simple way of taking into account all these characteristics. We build a statistical model around this transform, by defining an adaptive Gaussian model with interscale dependencies, global parameters, and hyperpriors controlling the behaviour of these parameters. This model has been successfully applied to denoising and deconvolution, for real images and simulations provided by the French Space Agency.
