In recent decades, an unprecedented amount of data have been gathered by the radar remote sensing community which are boosting the development of an increasing number of applications for the analysis of our environment.
This is due to the ability of radar sensors to operate independently of solar illuminations and penetrate clouds. In addition to that, interest in these sensors stems from their ability to analyze, detect, localize, and identify the slightest changes in the environment (maritime, terrestrial, urban area, etc.).
These tools have been improved with the synthetic aperture radar (SAR) technique. Thanks to this technique, it is not surprising that radar image processing is commonly used for the study of our Earth (urban planning, environmental sciences, earthquakes, hydrology, littoral zones, oceans, etc.) , and also in the problems of the automatic recognition of targets (ATR) in a heterogeneous environment which is not just terrestrial, but also maritime or aerial to provide, for example, a detailed of the battlefield situational awareness (tanks, howitzers, armored personnel carriers, ships, planes, etc.).
In this Special Issue on SAR Image Processing, we propose an overview of technological and scientific advances in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) image processing and applications. Authors are encouraged to present contributions on the exploitation of satellite or airborne SAR images in various problems. Advanced processing techniques such as Interferometric SAR (InSAR), differential InSAR, or polarimetric SAR imaging are also included.
Therefore, we encourage you to submit your recent and innovative work done in the field of this Special Issue dedicated to “Advances in SAR Image Processing and Applications”.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Remote Sensing is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
