A numerical model of a polydisperse ensemble of oriented plates is presented within the method of physical optics as applied to bistatic polarization laser sensing of crystal clouds. Characteristics of reflected radiation are investigated numerically as functions of the physical properties of crystals for different wavelengths of incident radiation. The possibility of estimating crystal size and orientation is studied.
