Abstract : Polarimetric incoherent target decomposition aims in access-ing physical parameters of illuminated scatters through the analysis of target coherence or covariance matrix. In this framework, Independent Component Analysis ICA was recently proposed as an alternative method to Eigenvector decomposition to better interpret non-Gaussian heterogeneous clutter inherent to high resolution SAR systems. Until now, the two main drawbacks reported of the aforementioned method are the greater number of samples required for an unbiased estimation, when compared to classical Eigenvector decomposition and the inability to be employed in scenarios under Gaussian clutter assumption. First, a Monte Carlo approach is performed in order to investigate the bias in estimating the Touzi Target Scattering Vector Model TSVM parameters when ICA is employed. A RAMSES X-band image acquired over Brétigny, France is taken into consideration to investigate the bias estimation under different scenarios. Finally, some results in terms of POLinSAR coherence optimization 1 in the context of ICA are proposed.
