An analysis of ship detection algorithms is presented for potential application in a future ship detection facility which would make use of SAR products aided by AIS information. A validation of Wackrman’s algorithm is also reported based on images of the Gulf of Naples gathered by COSMO/SkyMed. It is shown that, although successful in most cases, different approaches are required to discriminate between ships and image artefacts.
