Abstract

The algorithm of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) for automatic target recognition consists of two stages: feature extraction and classification. The quality of extracted features has significant impacts on the final classification performance. This paper presents a SAR automatic target classification method based on the wavelet-scattering convolution network. By introducing a deep scattering convolution network with complex wavelet filters over spatial and angular variables, robust feature representations can be extracted across various scales and angles without training data. Conventional dimension reduction and a support vector machine classifier are followed to complete the classification task. The proposed method is then tested on the moving and stationary target acquisition and recognition (MSTAR) benchmark data set and achieves an average accuracy of 97.63% on the classification of ten-class targets without data augmentation.
