This paper investigates the potential of synergies between polarimetry and interferometry techniques in SAR data (PolInSAR) for the purpose of covariance symmetries detection. The proposed approach will be shown to be able to exploit the peculiar structures of the covariance matrices of PolInSAR images and to discriminate symmetries within the pixel under test. The performance analysis was evaluated using simulated and operational Sensors data and showed a good outcome.
