Resolution of a radar is limited in range by its bandwidth. One of the various super-resolution techniques for improving its resolution is bandwidth extrapolation (BWE). In the technique, a linear prediction model is fitted to the data, and the model is used to extrapolate the bandwidth. In this paper, the concept of BWE is extended, and a new algorithm called polarimetric bandwidth extrapolation (PBWE) applicable to polarimetric radar data is proposed. It is shown through numerical simulations that utilization of full polarization information allows PBWE to improve the resolution beyond the conventional BWE method. Some results of physical simulation experiment using a W-band polarimetric FMCW radar and corner reflectors are shown to confirm the advantage of PBWE.
