Automatic target detection methods for synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images are sensitive to image resolution, size of the target to be detected, clutter complexity, and speckle noise level. A robust automatic target detection method needs to be less sensitive to the above factors. In this study, a constant false alarm rate (CFAR) based automatic target detection method which can find a target and its heterogeneous clutter independent of the image resolution and the target size has been developed. The proposed method provides efficient memory usage and low computational complexity.
