The paper is about the design and working principles of an experimental polarimetric ISAR system for measuring two-dimensional polarimetric radar signatures of aircraft in dynamic operational environments. The system is based on targets equipped with a coherent transponder for generating a reference signal which upon reception is used in the receiver to compensate for non-linearity in the VCO-generated linear-FM signal, as well as for performing the required motion compensation with optimum accuracy. The system makes it possible to study 2-D polarimetric ISAR in an "ideal" situation, where the limitations are due to factors other than motion compensation. Preliminary results demonstrating the functionality of the system are included.
