Paper Abstract

The problem of classification of radar targets when both phases and amplitudes are used under diverse angles of polarization ellipse and ellipticity is considered in this paper. Rayleigh quotients and Bhattacharyya distances are derived on synthetic aperture radar target signatures and shown that target separations are on the order of magnitudes larger for this case than traditionally used amplitude only case.
