This paper analyzes the spatial decorrelation between repeat-pass bistatic synthetic aperture radar (BSAR) images with Global Navigation Satellite Systems as transmitters and a fixed receiver. This study is needed in the development of such a system to monitor temporal changes in a scene. The main challenge is that, in this bistatic configuration, spatial coherence heavily depends on the data acquisition geometry. The appropriate theoretical framework to describe spatial coherence for this case is developed by extending well-established monostatic models and, in principle, can be applied to any fixed-receiver BSAR with a spaceborne transmitter. Theoretical results are initially supported by Monte Carlo simulations. Finally, the validity of the model is confirmed by comparing real images.
