A controlled environment is designed to analyze polarimetric features and decomposition methods for radar remote sensing purposes. The environment is based on the anechoic chamber of Università degli Studi di Napoli Parthenope (UNP) and it exploits a quasi-monostatic antenna configuration that is obtained using a transmitting antenna and two receiving antennas that coherently receive the co- and cross-polarized signals. This allows emulating polarimetric radar measurements related to slecetd targets in a controlled enviroment and, therefore, testing polarimetric radar features and methods. In this abstract, both an incoherent and a coherent analysis are undertaken with the latter exploiting Stokes parameters and eigenvalue decomposition. Experiments undertaking using a man-made depolarizing target confirm the soundness of the approach.
