Automated Poststorm Damage Classification of Low-Rise Building Roofing Systems Using High-Resolution Aerial Imagery

Techniques concerning postdisaster assessment from remotely sensed images have been studied by different research communities in the past decade. Such an assessment benefits a range of stakeholders, e.g., government organizations, insurance industry, l…

ISAR Imaging Using a New Stepped-Frequency Signal Format

In stepped-frequency (SF) radar systems, the high-order phase error due to target motion in each burst can blur the range profile seriously. The methods based on motion parameter estimation perform well in most cases. However, the motion parameter esti…

Ocean Surface Wind Retrieval From Dual-Polarized SAR Data Using the Polarization Residual Doppler Frequency

An alternative approach to sea surface wind retrieval using synthetic aperture radar (SAR) stripmap (SM) data is explored in this paper, using both the polarization residual Doppler frequency (PRDF)—the difference between the VV and HH Doppler c…

A New Algorithm to Retrieve Wave Parameters From Marine X-Band Radar Image Sequences

A new algorithm to retrieve wave parameters, such as significant wave height (SWH), peak wave period, wavelength, and wave direction, from marine X-band radar image sequences is proposed. To analyze the heterogeneous nearshore wave field, the empirical…

Synthetic Aperture Radar Image Segmentation by Modified Student’s t-Mixture Model

Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data are often affected by speckle noise, which originates in the SAR system’s coherent nature. In this paper, we introduce a simple and effective algorithm to make the traditional Student’s t-mixture model (SMM) more rob…

Targeted Land-Cover Classification

This paper addresses a specific typology of land-cover classification problems, hereinafter referred to as “targeted land-cover classification,” where the objective is the identification of only one or few specific “targeted&#x201D…

Improved Characterization of Fine-Texture Soils Using On-Ground GPR Full-Waveform Inversion

Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) uses the recording of electromagnetic waves and is increasingly applied for a wide range of applications. Traditionally, the main focus was on the analysis of the medium permittivity since estimates of the conductivity us…

Investigations on OFDM Signal for Range Ambiguity Suppression in SAR Configuration

This paper presents an opportunity to cancel range ambiguities in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) configuration. One of the limitations of SAR systems is the range ambiguity phenomenon that appears with long delayed echoes. The reflected signal correspo…
