This letter proposes a synthetic aperture radar (SAR) image registration method named Feature-Area Optimization (FAO). First, the traditional area-based optimization model is reconstructed and decomposed into three key but uncertain factors: initialization, slice set and regularization. Next, structural features are extracted by scale invariant feature transform (SIFT) in dual-resolution space (SIFT-DRS), a novel SIFT-Like method dedicated to FAO. Then, the three key factors are determined based on these features. Finally, solving the factor-determined optimization model can get the registration result. A series of experiments demonstrate that the proposed method can register multi-temporal SAR images accurately and efficiently.
