Abstract:

Polarization serves as a discrimant between radar targets and surrounding chaff and clutter. A dual channel system is required to utilize polarization information which exists in the target scattering matrix. Several methods are presented for designing an optimum polarization codes transmit waveform and matched coherent receiver based on target and clutter statistics. Simulation results for various target models against chaff show a significant increase in detectability for the two-channel system.
