Abstract:

Image display enhancement algorithms employing Statistical processing and Fuzzy Logic processing were applied to 14 synthetic aperture radar SAR images. Three groups of subject matter experts, provided by the Israel Ministry of Defense Air Force imagery analysts, Ground Corps Command imagery analysts, and Air Force weapon system officers employed a subjective image interpretability rating scale in assessing the affect of the enhancement processing. No statistically significant effect was found for either the algorithms or the groups of subjects.
