    Imaging of oil-well perforations using UWB synthetic aperture radar2015In: IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, ISSN 0196-2892, E-ISSN 1558-0644, Vol. 53, no 8, p. 4510-4520Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ultrawideband (UWB) synthetic aperture radar (SAR) as a tool for oil well perforation monitoring is experimentally investigated in this paper. Experiments are conducted on a lab prototype that emulates the small section of an oil well. Oil well perforations are scanned using the designed UWB radar system for different experimental conditions. High-resolution images in both down-range and cross-range are obtained by using UWB pulses and signal processing. High-quality images are constructed using SAR processing algorithm with the proposed modifications. Experiments are carried out for different perforation conditions such as open, partially clogged and fully clogged cases. It is shown by the experiments that the proposed radar technique and the data processing methods are capable of providing more revealing high-quality images. This approach can be applied effectively to monitor the oil well medium and detect well impairment locations.

    Suppression of Clutter in Multichannel SAR GMTI2014In: IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, ISSN 0196-2892, E-ISSN 1558-0644, Vol. 52, no 7, p. 4005-4013Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, results of moving target detection in multichannel UHF-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data are shown. The clutter suppression is done using Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filtering of multichannel SAR in combination with a 2-stage Fast Backprojection (FBP) algorithm to focus the moving target using relative speed. The FIR filter coefficients are chosen with the use of STAP filtering. Two parameters are used for target focusing, target speed in range and in azimuth. When the target is focused, both speed parameters of the target are found. In the experimental results, two channels were used in order to suppress clutter. In the resulting SAR images it is obvious that very strong scatterers and the forest areas have been suppressed in comparison to the moving target in the image scene. The gain obtained can be measured using SCNR gain, which is about 19dB. Another way to measure signal processing gain is the ability to suppress the strongest reflecting object in the SAR scene. The gain of target in relation to this object is 25dB. This shows that using UHF-band SAR GMTI for suppressing forest and increasing the target signal can work.

    Local Detection of Moving Targets in SAR Image Based on NRS Hypotheses2018In: IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, ISSN 0196-2892, E-ISSN 1558-0644, Vol. 56, no 10, p. 6101-6110Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ground moving target indication (GMTI) is one of the important applications of synthetic aperture radar (SAR). This paper introduces a GMTI method for local detection of the ground moving targets in SAR image based on normalized relative speed (NRS) hypotheses. The input of the GMTI method is a complex SAR image where areas of interest for GMTI are locally selected. The output of the method includes the detected targets, the NRSs with respect to the SAR platform, the locations where the detected targets are focused, and the SAR images of the detected targets. The mathematical background of the GMTI method is presented in detail. The method is validated with the data delivered by the Coherent All-Radio Band Sensor, an airborne ultrawideband-ultrawidebeam low-frequency SAR system. The shortcomings of the introduced method are investigated and followed with the solutions. IEEE

    Bivariate Gamma Distribution for Wavelength-Resolution SAR Change Detection2019In: IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, ISSN 0196-2892, E-ISSN 1558-0644, Vol. 57, no 1, p. 473-481Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A gamma probability density function (pdf) is shown to be an alternative to model the distribution of the magnitudes of high-resolution, i.e., wavelength-resolution, synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. As investigated in this paper, it is more appropriate and more realistic statistical in comparison with, e.g., Rayleigh. A bivariate gamma pdf is considered for developing a statistical hypothesis test for wavelength-resolution incoherent SAR change detection. The practical issues in implementation of statistical hypothesis test, such as assumptions on target magnitudes, estimations for scale and shape parameters, and implementation of modified Bessel function, are addressed. This paper also proposes a simple processing scheme for incoherent change detection to validate the proposed statistical hypothesis test. The proposal was experimented with 24 CARABAS data sets. With an average detection probability of 96%, the false alarm rate is only 0.47 per square kilometer. IEEE

    Fast Backprojection Algorithms Based on Subapertures and Local Polar Coordinates for General Bistatic Airborne SAR Systems2016In: IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, ISSN 0196-2892, E-ISSN 1558-0644, Vol. 54, no 5, p. 2706-2712Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper introduces a bistatic fast backprojection synthetic aperture radar (SAR) algorithm that is available for different bistatic geometries. The proposed algorithm is tested with the bistatic CARABAS-like data, and the results indicate that the algorithm is a good candidate for bistatic SAR data processing. The image quality measurements are quite similar to the referenced values obtained with the bistatic global backprojection algorithm. That is, the peak sidelobe ratio (PSLR) is -13.7 dB in comparison to the referenced PSLR of -13.8 dB. The half-power beamwidths (HPBWs) measured on the cuts in x and y and the direction where the peak sidelobes locate are 2.8, 3.7, and 3.5 m, respectively, which are approximate to the referenced HPBWs. The small differences in the measured results mainly come from the interpolation step of the algorithm.

    False Alarm Reduction in Wavelength-Resolution SAR Change Detection Using Adaptive Noise Canceler2017In: IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, ISSN 0196-2892, E-ISSN 1558-0644, Vol. 55, no 1, p. 591-599Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper introduces a method to reduce false alarms in wavelength-resolution synthetic aperture radar (SAR) change detection and aims at very high frequency-band systems like the Coherent All Radio Band System (CARABAS). The false alarms are usually caused by the elongated structures, such as power lines and fences, which stand out from the background. The responses of elongated structures are sensitive to flight path. The introduced method aims at minimizing the false alarms caused by the elongated structures and is based on the well-known adaptive processing mechanism, i.e., the so-called adaptive noise canceler (ANC) where a separate reference signal is required. The changes between measurements are considered by the input signal of ANC while the separate reference signal comes from the measurements without change. Hence, the method requires three SAR images associated with three measurements, with no changes between two of them. The reference data for the study are provided by CARABAS. The experimental results indicate that the method can reduce false alarms significantly and provide high probability of detection (≥98%). The experimental results also show that the method still works well even in the case where the flight tracks of the SAR system in the change detection measurements are slightly different.

    Detection of Moving Targets by Focusing in UWB SAR—Theory and Experimental Results2010In: IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, ISSN 0196-2892, E-ISSN 1558-0644, Vol. 48, no 10, p. 3799-3815Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Moving-target detection in ultrawideband (UWB) synthetic aperture radar (SAR) is associated with long integration time and must accommodate azimuth focusing for reliable detection. This paper presents the theory on detection of moving targets by focusing and experimental results on single-channel SAR data aimed at evaluating the detection performance. The results with respect to both simulated and real data show that the ability to detect moving targets increases significantly when applying the proposed detection technique. The improvement in signal-to-clutter noise ratio, which is a basic requisite for evaluating the performance, reaches approximately 20 dB, using only single-channel SAR data. This gain will be preserved for the case of multichannel SAR data. The reference system for this study is the airborne UWB low-frequency SAR Coherent All RAdio BAnd Sensing II.
