Described herein are various technologies relating to generating a reduced bias multi-resolution (RBMR) coherent change detection (CCD) image product. A low bias, low resolution (LBLR) CCD image product is generated based upon a first SAR image of a scene and a second SAR image of the scene, where each pixel in the LBLR CCD image has a respective value that is computed using a large box-filter. The LBLR CCD image is segmented into a plurality of segments, and a box-filter size is determined for each segment based upon values of pixels in the segment. A RBMR CCD image product is then computed using box-filters of the determined sizes.
