Automatic target recognition (ATR) is generally the reason why inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR) imaging systems are employed. Moreover, the use of fully polarimetric radar systems in radar imaging applications such as SAR and ISAR has enhanced both image quality and classification capabilities. The authors propose a novel technique for ATR using polarimetric ISAR (Pol-ISAR) images. The proposed method is based on a model matching approach. Results are obtained that show the effectiveness of such a technique.
