Polarimetric radar images: from acquisition to inversion

Abstract : This manuscript provides a summary of my research work conducted in ONERA about polarimetric radar images for remote sensing applications. A polarimetric radar system can measure a larger number of parameters than a single channel radar by discriminating between the polarizations of the electromagnetic wave that the system is able to transmit and receive. My research in this area includes: - The technological constraints about the polarimetric sensor design, the image formation process, and the statistical estimates of the variables of interest, - The image processing algorithms such as co-registration, segmentation and detection, - The three-dimensional information, - The electromagnetic model inversion for target detection in environments such as forest and urban areas.
