Implementation of convolutional neural networks (CNNs) as classifiers has only recently found application in SAR multi-target classification. Despite the creation of several successful architectures, a general approach to CNN design and training has not been determined. In this paper, the basics of CNN architecture and learning algorithms are discussed. The MSTAR data set is used to demonstrate the effect of individual parameter changes to overall network performance.
