Gleich, Dusan und Datcu, Mihai (2014) Despeckling and Information Extraction From SLC SAR Images. A swath 120–450 km wide is created from 5 antenna beams. Speckle makes the processing and interpretation of SAR images difficult. Abstract: Speckle is a granular disturbance, usually modeled as a multiplicative noise, that affects synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images, as well as all coherent images. : PATCH ORDERING-BASED SAR IMAGE DESPECKLING 1683 In this paper, we also propose to address SAR despeckling in the transformed image domain via sparse representation. We're upgrading the ACM DL, and would like your input. Keywords: Despeckling, intensity and amplitude SAR images, wavelet transform, Bayesian estimation. is there a way to automatically despeckle an entire folder with many SAR images using OTB? I’m very happy about the filtering obtained with the Lee filter provided by Orfeo. Speckle noise is multiplicative in nature. Speckle, which appears with a typ-ical grain effect, is due by the interference phenomena of the coherent waves. Besides despeckling the multi-channel SAR images efficiently, the proposed new models have advantages over other total variation methods in many aspects. In this paper, a new despeckling algorithm based on directionlets using multiscale products is proposed. INTRODUCTION A synthetic aperture radar (SAR) is used to obtain high resolution images of the earth. To calculate the threshold used,.
