Adaptive automated synthetic aperture radar vessel detection method with false alarm mitigation

A method involves adapting a vessel detection algorithm based upon received synthetic aperture radar (SAR) image data and associated metadata, detecting one or more vessels within an image tile of the SAR image data by iteratively applying the adapted vessel detection algorithm to successive portions of the image tile, discarding a detected vessel if a false alarm is determined, extracting one or more features from the detected vessels that are not discarded, and generating one or more output products based upon the extracted features.
