Abstract
Limits of the polarization technique in discriminating backscattered noise for a monostatic underwater viewing system are discussed. The approach presented is based on an analytical solution of the vector equation for radiative transfer in the small angle approximation. The influence of the water optical properties, the receiver range gate, and the field of view on the background reduction are investigated. Estimates are made of the enhancement of the target's apparent contrast and of the detection range that can be achieved for typical environmental conditions.
