Abstract – In general, registration methods can be divided into two categories: 1) area – based methods and 2) features based methods. The multiplicative speckle noise, SIFT has a limited performance when directly applied to synthetic aperture radar (SAR) image. In   this proposed SAR image registration approach is introduce to generate the scale space [i.e., nonlinear diffusion scale space (NDSS)], which has an advantage of preserving edges and details over the linear GSS. Meanwhile the ratio of exponential average weighted average (ROEWA) operator is used to compute the gradient information during the construction of NDSS. In this proposed method is to improve the registration accuracy, feature points are extracted using a variable block size with SIFT.
