In this letter, a statistical-based approach to recover layover solution in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images is proposed. The aim of this letter is to develop a methodology in order to separate different scattering contributions collapsed in a single SAR image pixel. After a brief discussion about layover, the proposed model is presented, followed by a discussion about achievable performances using Cramer-Rao lower bounds. In the final part of this letter, the performances of a maximum likelihood estimator are evaluated in a simulated data scenario, showing the effectiveness of the method.
