18 April 2010 A challenge problem for SAR change detection and data compression
Author Affiliations +
This document describes a challenge problem whose scope is two-fold. The first aspect is to develop SAR CCD algorithms that are applicable for X-band SAR imagery collected in an urban environment. The second aspect relates to effective data compression of these complex SAR images, where quality SAR CCD is the metric of performance. A set of X-band SAR imagery is being provided to support this development. To focus research onto specific areas of interest to AFRL, a number of challenge problems are defined. The data provided is complex SAR imagery from an AFRL airborne X-band SAR sensor. Some key features of this data set are: 10 repeat passes, single phase center, and single polarization (HH). In the scene observed, there are multiple buildings, vehicles, and trees. Note that the imagery has been coherently aligned to a single reference.
