Abstract:
Scattering characteristic of target in rain is studied in this paper, which calculates scattering matrix of rain area and that of cylinder target in rain, taking the effect from rain into account by substituting rain media for random media with equivalent complex permittivity. SCR (ratio of scattering signal induced by target in rain to clutter from rain) is computed, and the relation between SCR and polarization status of transmitting and receiving antennas is deduced. By optimizing the SCR, optimal polarization status of transmitting and receiving antennas are found. And, the results found in this paper are serviceable for communication system design [2, 4].
