A new method of target detection for polarimetric radar in the presence of strong active jamming is proposed. Based on analysis of the polarization characterizations of the signals received by polarimetric radar, the target detection is achieved through testing on the polarization information. Comparing with the traditional method of target detection made in time-frequency domain, the detection performance of the new method is improved because the influence of the strong active jamming is avoided. The performance of the new method is analyzed by simulation experiment.
