In this letter, a statistical edge detector based on the square successive difference of averages has been proposed and tested for SAR images. The operator employs the square successive of mean difference as the edge strength indicator for SAR images. It has been proved to be with constant false alarm rate and performs well in representation of many more region shapes. A postprocessing approach, including edge thinning and adaptive double-threshold processing, is proposed to refine the edge… CONTINUE READING
