Imperfect transmission of satellite imagery results in the loss of image lines. This paper proposes a novel error concealment technique using LSB-based watermarking. We generate block description information and insert it into the LSB bit plane of the image. Missing lines after transmission are restored by extracting this block description information. Simulation results show outstanding performance of the proposed technique.
