—Deep learning has been extensively useful for its ability to mimic the human brain to make decisions. It is able to extract features automatically and train the model for classification and regression problems involved with complex images databases. This paper presents the image classification using Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) for target recognition using Synthetic-aperture Radar (SAR) database along with Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) to justify the obtained results. In this work, we experimented with various CNN architectures on the MSTAR dataset, which is a special type of SAR images. Accuracy of target classification is almost 98.78% for the underlying preprocessed MSTAR database with given parameter options in CNN. XAI has been incorporated to explain the justification of test images by marking the decision boundary to reason the region of interest. Thus XAI based image classification is a robust prototype for automatic and transparent learning system while reducing the semantic gap between soft-computing and humans way of perception.
