Full text: PDF


A new method to recognize ship target in SAR imagery using an Active Appearance Model (AAM) is proposed in this paper. The AAM can describe both shape and grey-level appearance of target which can present the SAR target more accurately.The application of AAM in SAR targets recognition was discussed in details. And the effectiveness of the method was demonstrated through the ship target classification of airborne synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. The conclusion will help to direct the real SAR target recognition applications.
