Abstract
We present a detection concept for initial target screening based on features that are derived from a multiresolution decomposition of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data. The physical motivation of the multiresolution feature-based approach is the exploitation of signature oscillations produced by the interference between prominant scatterers in cultural objects when resolution is varied. We develop a generalized likelihood ratio test detector which differentiates between first order autoregressive multiresolution processes attributed to different spatial areas. We then derive two special cases of this detector motivated by arguments regarding the clutter statistics. We show that these schemes significantly outperform a standard energy detector operating on the finest available SAR resolution only.
