Sensors, Vol. 18, Pages 3448: A Boosting SAR Image Despeckling Method Based on Non-Local Weighted Group Low-Rank Representation (Sensors)
 




In this paper, we propose a boosting synthetic aperture radar (SAR) image despeckling method based on non-local weighted group low-rank representation (WGLRR). The spatial structure information of SAR images leads to the similarity of the patches. Furthermore, the data matrix grouped by the similar patches within the noise-free SAR image is often low-rank. Based on this, we use low-rank representation (LRR) to recover the noise-free group data matrix. To maintain the fidelity of the recovered image, we integrate the corrupted probability of each pixel into the group LRR model as a weight to constrain the fidelity of recovered noise-free patches. Each single patch might belong to several groups, so different estimations of each patch are aggregated with a weighted averaging procedure. The residual image contains signal leftovers due to the imperfect denoising, so we strengthen the signal by leveraging on the availability of the denoised image to suppress noise further. Experimental results on simulated and actual SAR images show the superior performance of the proposed method in terms of objective indicators and of perceived image quality.
