Abstract
A new target detection methodology is described that makes novel use of the polarization fork of the target. The mathematical formulation is general and can be applied to any kind of single target as long as its expression in the target space is known. Aim of this paper is to present a standard procedure to set the detector parameters for any target of interest. The algorithm makes use of the Gram-Schmidt ortho-normalization in order to set the appropriate basis for the polarimetric space. Validation against real data shows significant agreement with the expected results based on the theoretical description.
