In this work a novel approach to edge detection on Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images is introduced. The proposed method uses an optics inspired transform which emulates the diffraction of an image through a medium with nonlinear dispersive properties. The experimental results show that the output of the introduced Phase Stretch Transform (PST) in conjunction with further morphological operations can be effectively used for image edge detection.
