Since the polarization image contains abundant information of the object, the detecting ability of imaging system would be improved via observing the polarization features of this object. On the basis of analysis to the polarization characteristics, the active polarized imaging method is introduced in this paper, and active polarized imaging platform is built. Through this system, 3 typical samples of aluminum, iron with yellow coating, iron with green coating are adopted to simulate different objects on the sea. By measuring the parameters of amplitude ratio P, phase retardation θ, and completely depolarized coefficient ωd on the platform, which stand for the surface property of the material, we can testify the accuracy of the idea. The experiments result shows that the measured P and θ values are consistent with Fresnel equations, while for ωd , the value of seawater differs from that of the other two coating samples dramatically. As a result, it is feasible to discriminate coating target on the sea by measuring the depolarization characteristics.
