  • Over the recent years, deep-learning technology has been widely used. However, in research based on Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) ship target detection, it is difficult to support the training of a deep-learning network model because of the difficulty in data acquisition and the small scale of the samples. This paper provides a SAR ship detection dataset with a high resolution and large-scale images. This dataset comprises 31 images from Gaofen-3 satellite SAR images, including harbors, islands, reefs, and the sea surface in different conditions. The backgrounds include various scenarios such as the near shore and open sea. We conducted experiments using both traditional detection algorithms and deep-learning algorithms and observed the densely connected end-to-end neural network to achieve the highest average precision of 88.1%. Based on the experiments and performance analysis, corresponding benchmarks are provided as a basis for further research on SAR ship detection using this dataset.
