Synthetic aperture radar is a very popular and widely used instrument for various remote sensing tasks. In the paper, we propose several novel ideas for improvement of the efficiency of the modern SAR systems. At first, the problem of the automatic image stitching is considered. Instead of the common cross-correlation based solution the local features detection and description techniques are proposed. Secondly, we analyze the problem of the moving target parameters estimation. It is shown that the optical flow techniques can be used for the automatic extraction of the moving target shifts from the sequence of SAR looks. Experimental examples with real SAR data are illustrated and comprehensively discussed.
