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.

Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) is one of the most challenging areas of the modern radar signal processing field. In this paper a recognition algorithm for full-polarimetric SAR images, that is robust with respect to rotations and target roll, is presented. It is based on the use of the pseudo-Zernike moments and the Krogager decomposition components, and exploits multiple sources of information such as polarization and spatial diversity. The effectiveness of the proposed approach has been demonstrated with real full polarimetric SAR data.
