This paper presents a new phase unwrapping algorithm, based on an extended particle filter (EPF) for SAR interferometry. This technique is not limited by the nonlinearity of the model, and is able to accurately unwrap noisy interferograms by applying EPF to simultaneously perform noise suppression and phase unwrapping. Results obtained from synthetic and real data validate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
