In this paper the authors propose an innovative two-stage technique for ship detection which is applied to sea synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. This technique is based on the joint use of Wavelet theory, in particular of the two-dimensional Discrete Wavelet Transform (2D-DWT), and the Constant False Alarm Rate (CFAR) processor. Real data acquired from COSMO-SkyMed (CSK) system have been processed to verify the effectiveness of this proposed new technique.
