Multimodal Synthetic Aperture Radar (MM-SAR) Exploitation
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
This topic will address the need to increase the image analyst''''s ability to compare SAR images of a common scene taken at different times, also known as change detection. Within this study pixel level (coherent) and aggregate level (non-coherent) change detection methods will define two dimensions of a trade space to quantify the means and methods needed to enhance AF change detection abilities. In addition to the change detection methods a third dimension of the trade space will be the use of sub-aperture processing for the purpose of reveling otherwise obstructed targets which will complement one or both change detection methods. BENEFIT: The successful fielding of this technology will reduce Intel production timelines through semi-automated image cueing processes. Attention focusing filters will motivate Image analyst to concentrate on areas of suspected interest, thus allowing greater amounts of image data to be exploited. This program will also reduce false positive by cross cueing different exploitation methods thus allowing independent correlation from different methods.
