Abstract


  • In this paper, we examine the use of image segmentation

    approaches for target detection in TWRI. The betweenclass

    variance thresholding, entropy-based segmentation, and Kmeans

    clustering are applied to segment target and clutter regions.

    Real 2D polarimetric images are used to demonstrate that

    simple histogram-based segmentation methods produce either

    comparable or improved performance over the Likelihood Ratio

    Tests (LRT) detector. Specifically, the results show that, for the

    cases considered, the entropy-based segmentation outperforms

    the other image segmentation methods and the LRT detector.
