Images issued from a SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) sensor are effected by a specific noise called speckle; therefore, many studies have been dedicated to modulate this noise with the aim to be able to reduce its effects. Despite its good results, this framework is one of the most computationally intensive. All these signals present highly varying fluctuations because SAR is a coherent imaging system (see box "Speckle fluctuations in radar images").

Multiscale Compound PDE Approach for Despeckling of US/SAR/OCT Images S. Abstract: In this paper we have study about despeckling of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images. as a multiplicative noise, that affects synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images, as well as all coherent images. All these signals present highly varying fluctuations because SAR is a coherent imaging system (see box "Speckle fluctuations in radar images"). Despeckling is a longstanding topic in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. The second method uses a fractal. The Bayesian approach. The proposed method uses a scattering covariance matrix of each image patch as the basic processing unit, which can exploit both the amplitude information of each pixel and the phase. SAR Image Despeckling Using a Convolutional Neural Network - HKCaesar/ID-CNN. Despeckling of SAR Images Using Wavelet Based Spatially Adaptive Method B. 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. Abstract: In this paper we have study about despeckling of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images. CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Abstract—In this paper, we propose a new method for synthetic aperture radar (SAR) image despeckling via L0-minimization strategy, which aims to smooth homogeneous areas while preserve significant structures in SAR images. to reduce noise from images. This paper elaborates on the multilayer perceptron (MLP) neural-network model for SAR image despeckling by using a time series of SAR images. Abstract: In this paper, we propose a new variational model for speckle reduction of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images based on the G(0) statistical distribution and nonlocal total variation (NLTV) regularization. Therefore, speckle reduction is generally used as a first step which has to smooth out homogeneous regions while preserving edges and point scatterers. Despeckling in SAR images is for preserving all texture features efficiently. Marta 3, I-50139, Firenze, Italy, phone: +39 055 4796424, fax: +39 055 472858. We argue that the gradients of the despeckled images are sparse and can be pursued by L0-norm minimization. Introduction Speckle noise is a granular disturbance that degrades images acquired with active coherent systems.
