Synthetic aperture sonar (SAS) imagery is largely used in detection, location and classification of underwater mines laying on or buried in the sea bed. This paper proposes a detection method using higher order statistics (HOS) on SAS images. The proposed method can be divided into two steps. Firstly, the HOS (skewness and kurtosis) are locally estimated… CONTINUE READING
