With the development of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) technology,
INS/SAR integrated navigation system is widely used. In this paper, we will
elementarily investigate image matching algorithm and guidance scheme of it.
Primary test is also done to validate the matching algorithm.
Development and application of SAR is summarized. Moreover, two
different terrain feature navigation concepts and the development of image
matching algorithm are introduced.
By means of theoretical analysis and relevant comparison experiments, we
found a Canny Algorithm adaptive to SAR image extraction from the algorithms
which adaptive to image feature extraction in optics. Some rectifying schemes
used in practical application are also proposed, and get preferable performance in
Several Hausdorff Distance Algorithms are analyzed in detail when
choosing the main algorithm of image feature matching. Comparing the merits
and demerits and application limitation of different algorithms, primary matching
schemes are made. And then according to the condition that rotation error
appears in image matching navigation, we make some analyses and
demonstrations which are the basis of elementary image matching guidance
Experiments results indicate that delicate job in making template and real-
time image interception is helpful to improve matching performance. Also, it is
proved that there is a huge diversity in the matching performance between
matching template with real-time image and matching real-time i
