This paper deals with a new SAR Processor based on a subspace detector used for Man Made Target (MMT) detection. This new algorithm aims at using new models, different from the isotropic point one commonly used in SAR processors. The implementation of Subspace Detector SAR (SDSAR) algorithm is described and simple examples show the interest of using a model matched to the target, first in a white Gaussian noise then in a simulated forest clutter.
