Paper Abstract

A fully polarimetric radar system consists of orthogonal dual polarized transmission mode and a dual channel receive mode that are typically set to be copolar and cross polar to the transmit state of polarization. The transmit polarization state can be switched alternately between the two states. This paper presents techniques to construct instantaneous fully polarimetric response from switched systems. Three different algorithms are presented for the reconstruction of instantaneous full polarimetric response in the context of observation of atmospheric targets at microwave frequencies. The performance of the suggested algorithms is studied using data from switched dual channel polarimetric radar at C-band.
