    The article describes specific aspects of the radar polarimetry using sounding signals with dual-orthogonality. Such signals provide the unique opportunity to measure all elements of the polarization back-scattering matrix simultaneously, during one sweep/pulse period of radar signal. This approach has been implemented in the IRCTR PARSAX radar system, the fully polarimetric high-resolution Doppler FMCW radar. The digital architecture of the radar starts from intermediate frequency and makes the radar fully reconfigurable in terms of sounding waveforms and processing algorithms.
