A new approach to ship detection, discrimination, and motion estimation is proposed and demonstrated using a combined polarimetry and GMTI technique from a spaceborne platform. Using a standard dual-pol SAR, the new method exploits a bright “shadow” in cross-pol imagery of a moving ship and its azimuth-shifted image to discriminate it from other stationary or quasi-stationary objects (e.g., icebergs) on the ocean surface and to estimate its motion parameters, such as radial speed and heading… CONTINUE READING
