A CMOS analogue circuit for Gaussian noise generation as well as a novel circuit for transforming Gaussian noise into uniform noise, both designed for operating with a supply voltage of 1.5V, are presented. Both circuits are optimized for a 0.35µm standard CMOS technology using an equation-based design methodology based on genetic algorithms. Electrical(More)
This paper presents an algorithm for spots detection in Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images that can be used to support environmental remote monitoring. Monitoring areas with high frequency of oil spillage by accidental or illegal oil discharges can prevent marine damage spreading. But the presence of speckle noise in SAR images limits the visual(More)
Identification of potential oil spills on Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellite images is a complex process. Oil companies, as well as the coast guard have tested a whole range of methods for monitoring and detection of possible oil spills. These methods are found to be expensive, complex and require high processing power and time. In this paper, an oil(More)
