Abstract
Open water SAR images frequently exhibit long dark or bright linear features, some of which are ship wakes, internal wave or internal wave wakes of under water moving objects. The detection of these line features is very impotent in both civil and military fields. Considering to the drawbacks of conventional Radon transform, this paper proposed a novel liner feature detection method. It use the gliding window and firstly apply a Radon transform to the aim image, use a "mean matrix" to normalize the aim image in the Radon domain, and then search for the peaks or troughs in an ellipse region instead of the whole region. This algorithm is tested on a set of simulated SAR images of ship wakes. The results demonstrate that this algorithm's robustness in the presence of noise, as well as its ability to detect and localize linear features that are somewhat not so straight.
