In this paper, we show the capabilities of a new maritime control system based on the processing of COSMO-SkyMed Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images. This system aims at fast detection of ships that may be responsible for illegal oil dumping. In particular, a novel detection algorithm based on the joint use of the significance parameter, wavelet… (More)
In this paper, the potential of an avionic polarimetric weather radar is shown. The simulator used for such a purpose is a statistical simulator capable of reproducing complex signals as those gathered by an onboard radar, along with polarimetric and Doppler observables. The simulator, developed in the framework of the CleanSky European program, can be an… (More)
Avionic Weather Radar is an essential equipment in aircraft. Polarimetry can improve the detection and the classification of hydrometeors and thus the safety and the efficiency of the flight. Here a 3D polarimetric radar simulator for the feasibility study on avionic weather polarimetric radar is presented.
