Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper deals with coherent multi-polarization SAR change detection assuming the availability of reference and test images collected from N multiple polarimetric channels. At the design stage, the change detection problem is formulated as a binary hypothesis testing problem and the principle of invariance is used to come up with decision rules sharing the Constant False Alarm Rate (CFAR) property. A class of suboptimum invariant receivers, which also includes the Generalized Likelihood Ratio Test (GLRT), is considered. Detection maps on real high resolution SAR data are computed showing the effectiveness of the considered invariant decision structures.
