Abstract
Full polarization data gathered by the NASA/JPL AIRSAR P-band radar in Gilmore Creek, Alaska (1993), Half Moon Bay, California (1994), and Bishop, California (1995) are imaged using full polarization displays. Full polarization symbol displays of reflector signatures and of simulated small aircraft crash sites are presented. In addition, ideal polarimetric reflector responses are compared to measured reflector signatures extracted from ADTS MMW SAR scenes and AIRSAR scenes. It is demonstrated that full polarization displays can be used to quickly identify polarization calibration errors based on clutter responses alone.
