This study proposes the spectrum analysis of the scattering-type parameter, $\theta_{\text{FP}}$, to characterize different land cover targets. Many orthonormal projections of the scattering information onto distinct polarization bases have been proposed in the literature. However, these conventional orthonormal basis projection techniques often provide various target characterization ambiguities and classification. In this work, we propose projecting the target coherency matrix onto several random realizations of the normalized scattering configuration without restriction to the orthogonality constraint. This unique approach helps enhanced target characterization from polarimetric SAR data. \textcolor{black}{We show the efficacy of our proposed technique over different land cover types using the C-band RADARSAT-2 data over SF and the L-band ALOS-2 data over Mumbai.
