Paper Abstract

Polarimetric measurements provide additional information to aid in determining the geometric and physical properties of sub-surface targets. In this paper algorithms are derived to extract polarimetric target descriptors from a Stepped Frequency Continuous Wave Ground Penetrating Radar (SFCW GPR) data. The algorithm uses the multi-snapshot Matrix Pencil-of-function Method, to estimate the parameters of a fully polarimatric SFCW GPR model developed in this paper. The processing is applied to both simulated and laboratory measurements, and the results demonstrate the validity of this technique.
