Abstract:

The study investigated the effects of image compression processing on synthetic aperture radar imagery. Image quality measurements were performed before and after compression. Image fidelity measurements were made comparing the compressed and original versions of each image. Operator performance was assessed using an interpretability rating scale. Possible effects of an interaction between compression and automatic target recognizer performance were explored using a generic constant false alarm rate automatic target cuer algorithm.
