In this paper, the morphological filter based on parametric edge detection is presented and applied to imaging ladar image with speckle noise. This algorithm and Laplacian of Gaussian (LOG) operator are compared on edge detection. The experimental results indicate the superior performance of this kind of the edge detection.
