Abstract
This contribution is concerned with coherent polarimetric bistatic scattering of plane electromagnetic waves from deterministic radar targets. The Huynen fork descriptor for the monostatic backscatter case describing the relations between optimal characteristic target polarizations on the Poincare sphere is extended to the bistatic scattering case by introducing a double Huynen fork for transmission and reception. The analysis relies on the singular value decomposition theorem.
