Hopmans, L.J.M. Gelsema, S.J. Kester, L.J.H.M. TNO Fysisch en Elektronisch Laboratorium Publication year 2001 Abstract Doppler polarimetry in a surveillance radar for the maritime surface picture is considered. This radar must be able to detect low-RCS targets in littoral environments. An overview is given of subjects that are relevant for the system's design, Discussed are: physical phenomena that can be exploited by a coherent polarimetric radar, the effecs of seawave masking, strategies to estimate the cornplex scattering matrix per range Doppler bin, scattering matrix decomposition for target classification and the procedure to assess the radar's performance, Results obtained with a coherent polarimetric erperimental radar will be discussed in ensuing communications, Subject Radar To reference this document use: http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:433aee3d-cb51-4adc-8aa9-9a2bb5f4a1fe TNO identifier 95385 Publisher Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Ortung und Navigation e.V., Bonn Source Proceedings German Radar Symposium GRS 2000, 11-12 October 2000, Berlin, Germany, 33-37 Document type conference paper Files To receive the publication files, please send an e-mail request to TNO Library.
