AbstractRADARSAT, equipped with a C-band HH-polarized synthetic aperture radar (SAR), has the potential to provide the marine user community with near-real time information to meet operational requirements. This study investigates the application of the RADARSAT SAR for vessel detection, in the context of the Ocean Monitoring Workstation (OMW), a system for extracting marine information from RADARSAT imagery. We present results of the RADARSAT/OMW validation activities; as well, difficulties and constraints in the validation process are discussed.
