Paper Abstract

Pitch and yaw of objects moving at high velocities can be measured with a Doppler interferometer system employing corner cube retroreflectors mounted on the moving object. Measurement of pitch or yaw alone was demonstrated in laboratory and field experiments. Using the Jones calculus, the polarization considerations for measuring both pitch and yaw simultaneously have been analyzed.
