Abstract:The challenges of the Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) image formation principles, the high data volume, and the very high acquisition rate stimulated from the very beginning the elaborations of sophisticated techniques. Meanwhile, SAR technologies have immensely evolved. The state of the art sensors deliver widely different imaging modes and have made considerable progress in spatial and radiometric resolution, target acquisition strategies, or geographical coverage and data rates. Generally, imaging sensors generate an isomorphic representation of the observed scene. This is not the case for SAR, the observations are a doppelganger of the scattered field, an indirect signature of the imaged object. This spots the load of SAR image understanding, and the utmost challenge of Big SAR Data Science, as a new and particular challenge of Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). The presentation reviews and analyses the new approaches of SAR imaging leveraging the recent advances in the physical process based on ML and AI methods and signal processing. A particular focus is on the scientific methods of Deep Learning and an information theoretical model of the SAR information extraction process.
