Paper Abstract

The invariant signatures of a polarimetric radar are considered. It is established theoretically that the polarimetric characteristics of the backscattered radar signals depend on the shape and the electrophysical parameters of the sensed objects. This statement is confirmed by the experimental data. The presented polarimetric diagrams of the backscattered signals of the vertical and horizontal polarizations reflected from different sensed objects show the difference in the polarimetric invariant signatures. The presented radar images illustrate that the polarimetric characteristics of the backscattered radar signals depend on the shape and the electrophysical parameters of the RS objects. These correlations create the preconditions for the development of the highly efficient radar systems for the detection, selection, recognition and cartography on the base of the use of the invariant polarimetric signal parameters.
