Application of freeman decomposition to full polarimetric GPR

Abstract

Full-polarimetric Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) is considered as a promising sensor for detecting buried targets.However,the polarimetric decomposition technique plays a crucial role in identifying and classifying targets which are buried in the sand under the surface.The decomposition techniques of full-polarimetric Groundpenetrating radar includes four decomposition methods ,namely: (1) Pauli decomposition method ,(2) H-α decomposition method, (3) Freeman decomposition method and (4) polarimetric anisotropy analysis method .This paper mainly applys Freeman decomposition method to recognition of metal surface plate,dihedral and metal ball.The potential of polarimetric target decomposition techniques to metal surface plate ,dihedral and metal ball characterization and classification is shown which provides valuable information.
