The networks of cell phone base stations not only provide continuous service for mobile communications users but also offer abundant illuminator resources for passive surveillance radar systems. This extensively explores the potential applications of passive surveillance radar using cell phone base station signals for various scenarios such as ground traffic monitoring, coastal and air surveillance, and through-the-wall motion detections. These promising experimental results demonstrated that such systems can be an attractive, low-cost alternative solution for various applications and prospectively as a complement to traditional active radar systems.
