6 Antenna System 3.5 Direct coupling: 1.8 HH < -100 db VV < -85 db 6

7 Technological Novelties in the PARSAX design and current state of the system Design and optimization of the PARSAX RF/IF blocks have been done using ADS simulation software Receiver Received signals converted into digital form at IF and then processed real-time in FPGAbased digital receiver Current radar configuration includes two channels receiver and provide already the possibilities to measure all polarimetric information 7

11 Conclusions Using the orthogonal waveforms as orthogonally-polarized components of the radar sounding signal gives the possibility to measure all elements of the polarization backscattering matrix simultaneously The technological development gives the possibility to implement that principle in the high-resolution radar system for the remote sensing application The basic principles of the PARSAX - high-resolution high-sensitive Doppler polarimetric radar for simultaneous measurement of all elements of scattering matrix has been demonstrated. The radar has very flexible architecture in terms of sounding signals and processing algorithms. In a few months we will have full configuration with 4 parallel channels 11
