This paper investigates the optimization of the full-polarization radar transmission waveform and the receiver response to maximize either target detection or identification performance. Application of such full-polarization matched-illumination techniques to simulated VHF-band frequency response data of mobile surface targets yields a significant performance improvement over that corresponding to chirped full-polarization transmission waveforms.
