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
