SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The invention pertains to correlating a received waveform of a wideband electromagnetic signal with a predetermined waveform. A correlating polarimeter includes a first antenna for receiving an electromagnetic signal and a modulator interconnected with the first antenna for modulating the electromagnetic signal. A modulated electromagnetic signal results that contains a different polarization state for each frequency of the electromagnetic signal with the amplitude of each frequency component of the modulated electromagnetic signal being a function of the particular polarization state of each frequency component of the electromagnetic signal. The correlating polarimeter may also include a linear polarizer that can be configured to pass a first predetermined polarization of the modulated electromagnetic signal through a first output thereof, a first receiver for receiving and demodulating the electromagnetic signal from the linear polarizer and outputting a received waveform, and a correlator interconnected with the first receiver to compare the received waveform to a predetermined waveform and output a correlation indicator.
