Official Filing: View the Complete Patent
Abstract: Various technologies pertaining to identification of vehicle tracks in synthetic aperture radar coherent change detection image data are described herein. Coherent change detection images are analyzed in a parameter space using Radon transforms. Peaks of the Radon transforms correspond to features of interest, including vehicle tracks, which are identified and classified. New coherent change detection images in which the features of interest and their characteristics are signified are then generated using inverse Radon transforms.
