This paper analyses the use of commercial Frequency Modulation (FM) broadcasting signals to configure a Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) parasitic (passive) radar system. The postulated system utilises multiple transmitters of opportunity, operating at multiple frequencies, with spatially distributed receivers. By utilising the Neyman-Pearson hypothesis, this paper addresses detection issues for such a MIMO parasitic radar system. Closed-form expressions for calculating the probability of detection with a given probability of false alarm has been derived. Lastly, Monte Carlo simulation results confirming the theoretical derivations are presented.
