Abstract

Fully polarimetric SAR gives valuable information on the nature of scattering mechanisms, which can be used for vehicle detection. This project aims at comparing the contrast between vehicles and background offered by different polarimetric features, at different wavelengths and under different orientation angles. The study is based on data acquired with DLR’s FSAR, in Oksbøl, Denmark, at X, S and L bands. This work can lead to further improvements in target detection by selecting individual features or a combination of features optimizing contrast between vehicles and their surroundings.
