A test was conducted to determine to what extent a novel radar processing technique (non-coherent averaging) improves the detectability of targets imaged by SAR systems. Eight radar interpreters performed a radar exploitation task using both conventional and non-coherent processing methods. Comparative performance measures of detection accuracy scores and timeliness were calculated. The results indicated that, for analysis of the imagery with the non-coherent technique, interpreter performance was superior to that using conventional image processing techniques.
