Abstract
The Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) is a promising sensor to obtain high-resolution images. But the presence of speckled noise brings many difficulties to SAR image processing, especially in edge detection. The edge detection methods available cannot solve this problem perfectly. An effective edge detection algorithm based on the directional information is presented, in which, two transforms are introduced, one is Fast Slant Stack transform, a new radon transform with the advantage of speed and invertibility, the other is Redundant Discrete Wavelet Transform(RDWT) whose best performance in edge detection is shift-variance characteristic. Besides, overlapped windows and soft threshold utilized to reduce the wrong detection probability and improve the location precision. Finally, comparisons with related methods are given in this paper. Experimental results prove the proposed algorithm can obtain valid edge information in SAR images.
