Abstract
The Canadian Department of National Defence (DND) conducted a joint mission involving ship detection in the Grand Banks area of Canada in March 2000. Among the objectives of the mission were the characterization of ocean clutter and ships using fully polarmetric airborne SAR. In this paper, we summarise the data acquisition both in terms of the airborne SAR acquisition and in terms of the ship and surface truth information from the trial. Some preliminary observation are made on the properties of the SAR data and genral conclusions are drawn about the polarmetric properties of the ship and ocean signatures.
