The Advanced Detection Technology Program has as one objective the application of fully polarimetric, high-resolution radar data to the detection, discrimination, and classification of stationary targets. In support of this program, the Advanced Detection Technology Sensor (ADTS), a fully polarimetric, 35-GHz SAR with 1 ft by 1 ft resolution was developed. In April of 1989, the ADTS gathered target and clutter data near Stockbridge, NY. Data from this collection is being used to investigate optimal polarimetric processing techniques. This paper summarizes the results of a recent study of an optimal polarimetric method for reducing speckle in SAR imagery.
