Basic principles of radar polarimetry are introduced. The target characteristic polarization state theory is developed first for the coherent case using the three step, the basis transformation, and the power (Mueller) matrix optimization procedures. Kennaugh's and Huynen's theories of radar target polarimetry are verified for the monostatic reciprocal case. It is shown that there exist in total five unique pairs of characteristic polarization states for the symmetric scattering matrix. The… CONTINUE READING
