Paper Abstract

The present bistatic radar system is polarimetric and operates coherently over the 30-1300 MHz band; it is able to scan foliage in angle to ascertain spatial variations in the transmission properties of the foliage that can degrade the ability of the radar to focus a foliage-obscured object. The system is ground-based, with one antenna attached to a carriage that can move 10 m horizontally along a rigid track and a second, fixed-tripod antenna. Angular and frequency-correlation measurements are presented and discussed.
