A dual-polarimetric model to exploit PingPong mode X-band full-resolution COSMO-SkyMed (CSK©) SAR data for metallic targets observation purposes is developed. The model relates the correlation between the co-polarized channels, in case of sea surface with and without metallic targets, to the time leg between two successive bursts.

Abstract

A dual-polarimetric model to exploit PingPong mode X-band full-resolution COSMO-SkyMed (CSK©) SAR data for metallic targets observation purposes is developed. The model relates the correlation between the co-polarized channels, in case of sea surface with and without metallic targets, to the time leg between two successive bursts. Experiments undertaken over COSMO-SkyMed Single Look Complex Slant (SCS) PingPong SAR data demonstrate the soundness of the proposed approach and its effectiveness from an operational viewpoint.
