Abstract : During the tenure of this initiation contract on Polarization Utilization in Radar Target Identification a center of excellence for research in high resolution radar polarimetry was established within the Electromagnetic Imaging Division (EMID), Communications Laboratory (CL), Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS), University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) with the express purpose of advancing theoretical, computational and experimental methods for radar target detection in clutter; separation of useful target vector signal from noise and clutter; classification of targets and/or clutter; target and/or clutter imaging, as well as target identification. To assist us in this endeavor, the College of Engineering, UIC, initially made available 2,200 sq. ft. laboratory space which now has expanded to 9,000 sq. ft. within SEL-4209/4210/4211 with adjacent side rooms, housing the CL-office, work and laboratory space for 18 research assistants and a DEC-VAX 11/750 and 780 Research Computer Processing System with some peripheral image processing, printing, color-graphics processors which were made available with partial funding from DoD-research offices and need to be further expanded.
