Abstract
The very-high spatial resolution provided by COSMO-Skymed products, also considering the concurrent TerraSAR-X mission, opens new challenges in the field of SAR image processing for remote sensing applications, maybe comparable to those represented by the first optical commercial satellites at the beginning of last decade. The Tor Vergata-Frascati test site, where extensive ground-truth data are available, was imaged by the COSMO constellation at two different days in summer 2010. This enabled first investigations on the potential of this type of imagery in providing a characterization of sub-urban areas by exploitation of both amplitude and phase information contained in the radar return. In particular this paper deals with the set-up of preliminary chains of automatic processing based on Multi-Layer Perceptron neural networks for pixel based analysis. Also some comments concerning the retrieval of information on the vertical properties of a single building are reported.
