Abstract
An engineering approach has been applied to the theory of radar polarimetry. It offers numerous advantages in analyzing propagation and scattering ofpolarized waves. It is based on introduction of two mutually conjugate 2-dim. complex spaces of the polarization and phase (PP) vectors and on application of the matrix calculus to the transmission equations when using the exactly defined PP bases. The PP vectors of waves and antennas, including their PP basis vectors, are considered as phasors tangent to the polarization sphere. Keywords: radar polanmetry, bistatic scauering, polarization and phase vector, tangential phasor
