  2. Existing methods to detect vehicle tracks in coherent change detection images, a product of combining two synthetic aperture radar images taken at different times of the same scene, rely on simple, fast models to label track pixels. These models, however, are unable to capture natural track features such as continuity and parallelism. More powerful, but computationally expensive models can be used in offline settings. We present an approach that uses dilated convolutional networks consisting of a series of 3-by-3 convolutions to segment vehicle tracks. The design of our networks considers the fact that remote sensing applications tend to operate inmore » low power and have limited training data. As a result, we aim for small, efficient networks that can be trained end-to-end to learn natural track features entirely from limited training data. We demonstrate that our 6-layer network, trained on just 90 images, is computationally efficient and improves the F-score on a standard dataset to 0.992, up from 0.959 obtained by the current state-of-the-art method.« less
  3. Here, we present an approach to segment vehicle tracks in coherent change detection images, a product of combining two synthetic aperture radar images taken at different times. The approach uses multiscale higher order random field models to capture track statistics, such as curvatures and their parallel nature, that are not currently utilized in existing methods. These statistics are encoded as 3-by-3 patterns at different scales. The model can complete disconnected tracks often caused by sensor noise and various environmental effects. Coupling the model with a simple classifier, our approach is effective at segmenting salient tracks. We improve the F-measure onmore » a standard vehicle track data set to 0.963, up from 0.897 obtained by the current state-of-the-art method.« less

Existing methods to detect vehicle tracks in coherent change detection images, a product of combining two synthetic aperture radar images ta ken at different times of the same scene, rely on simple, fast models to label track pixels. These models, however, are often too simple to capture natural track features such as continuity and parallelism. We present a simple convolutional network architecture consisting of a series of 3-by-3 convolutions to detect tracks. The network is trained end-to-end to learn natural track features entirely from data. The network is computationally efficient and improves the F-score on a standard dataset to 0.988,more » up fr om 0.907 obtained by the current state-of-the-art method.« less
