In this letter, a modified bilateral filter suitable for synthetic aperture radar (SAR) image despeckling, named space-domain filter with alterable window (SFAW), is proposed. SFAW features geometric adaptivity, in both spatial and similarity functions, respectively driven by the following: 1) the local coefficient of variation ( CV) and 2) the joint probability density function model of two pixels having the same reflectivity. Tests on synthetic and real SAR images show that SFAW notably smoothes speckle with unperceivable detail blurring and achieves better performances than other related methods.
