dual-polarization radar

A radar capable of transmitting and receiving two orthogonal polarizations.

The transmitted polarization must be switchable at a rate that is fast compared with the timescale of changes in the scattering properties of the target and the propagation medium.
Compare dual-channel radar, polarimetric radar, polarization-diversity radar.
