A stochastic model for restoration of and edge extraction from synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images is presented. This model is based on an observation-prediction model which favors the restoration of piecewise-constant patches separated by long continuous edges. Speckle noise is filtered out by means of an a-priori fixed probability distribution dependent on the number of views. Results on synthetic and real images are reported. To reduce the computational cost, simulated annealing is replaced with a deterministic algorithm based on the weak membrane model and on the mean field equations adapted to SAR
