have been discarded in Figure 8. However, the detection result 
shows degraded edge connectivity, this can be made up by 
some following processing such as edge linking. The ROI 
boundary image which is supposed to have better connectivity 
and less fake edges is not regarded as the final detection result, 
because the location of the edge is no longer accurate after 
image segmentation and a series of filtering process.

A detection method for line-type targets based on SAR and 
optical image fusion is proposed in this paper. The region 
integrality of SAR images and the legible edge of optical 
images are utilized in the method. It can be easily realized, 
since the involved image processing technologies are all well- 
developed and mature. Experiment results demonstrate the 
feasibility and the validity of the proposed method. However, 
some improvement can be made in the following aspects. The 
final detection result should be provided with better edge 
connectivity on the premise of algorithm simplicity and 
speediness; different pixel location should be given a different 
believe factor to generate a more better result.
