Forcing Scale Invariance in Multipolarization SAR Change Detection
—This paper considers the problem of coherent (in the sense that both amplitudes and relative phases of the polarimetric returns are used to construct the decision statistic) multipolarization synthetic aperture radar change detection starting from the availability of image pairs exhibiting possible power mismatches/miscalibrations. The principle of invariance is used to characterize the class of scale-invariant decision rules which are insensitive to power mismatches and ensure the constant false alarm rate property. A maximal invariant statistic is derived together with the induced maximal invariant in the parameter space which significantly compresses the data/parameter domain. A generalized likelihood ratio test is synthesized both for the cases of two- and three-polarimetric channels. Interestingly, for the two-channel case, it is based on the comparison of the condition number of a data-dependent matrix with a suitable threshold. Some additional invariant decision rules are al...
