Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images are often subject to visual inspection and analysis. Many factors impact on visual quality of SAR images, such as properties of speckle, dynamic range of data, etc. Thus, the corresponding metrics have to be applied and it is worth predicting their values before one starts analyzing images. Using a set of input parameters (both statistical and spectral) and a trained neural network (NN), we show that full-reference visual quality metrics can be predicted for images acquired by modern SAR Sentinel-1. A prediction accuracy is studied and verified on real-life examples. The source codes and datasets will be made publicly available at https://github.com/asrubel/EUVIP2019.
