Kuan (MAP):  Kuan Maximum A Posteri filter; this filter removes speckle from radar images using a maximum likelihood probability approach to estimate the true signal value for the center cell in the filter window.  The filter then maximizes a probability function involving the center cell value, the local mean and standard deviation, and the noise standard deviation.
