Average values of the invariant polarization parameters for scattering by compound objects
- 25 Downloads
The problem of analytical calculation of average values of the invariant polarization electromagnetic field parameters is considered for scattering by a compound object comprising an artificial small-sized object and underlying surface with a considerable number of centers of secondary scattering. The main difference of this work from the results obtained by W. Boerner, E. Pottier, and S. Cloude [1, 2, 3] and other researchers is efficient application of polarization invariants of radar objects that can be measured in real time and displayed on a radar monitor. The application of these invariants allows the radar image contrast to be improved significantly and the probability of detection of small-sized objects against the underlying surface background to be increased.
