    A view of the broad subject area of multistatic radar is given in an attempt to clarify the several different terms used for various possible configurations and to classify them. The potential of multistatic systems compared to monostatic ones is listed, and the dependence on different configurations, types of co-operation, implemented techniques, modes of operation and different applications are ...

    The article begins with a review of the history of bistatic and multistatic radars, including the simultaneous introduction of radar technology in several countries during the 1930s and the various areas of technology development pursued by those countries. Technical descriptions are presented of nine different experimental systems. The article continues with a discussion of the potential military... View full abstract»

    Unless the separation between transmitter and receiver is small compared with ranges of interest, bistatic radars have a number of properties which differ significantly from the monostatic equivalents. Some of these produce operational advantages which provide a motivation for deployment, while others merely bring trouble and expense. The paper considers the basic bistatic properties which depend ... View full abstract»

  • Overview of detection theory in multistatic radar

    The detection problem with multistatic radar systems is considered, resorting to the theory of detection of coherent target signals having a Gaussian probability density embedded in coherent Gaussian-distributed disturbances (i.e. clutter and/or directional jamming). A novelty of the paper is related to the capability of dealing with any type of time autocorrelation function of both target and dis... View full abstract»

  • Distributed detection of swerling targets

    A theory of distributed detection, which we developed in a recent paper, is applied to the multistatic detection of radar targets characterised by the well known Swerling models. Distributed detection, which has decided practical advantages over the conventional multistatic and monostatic configurations, is shown to be only slightly inferior in detection performance. It is observed, interestingly,... View full abstract»

    The paper presents a unified view of the tracking algorithms available for multistatic radar systems. The first topic considered is the derivation of tracking algorithms for bistatic radar. Different algorithms can be conceived according to different sets of measurements which may be processed (e.g. the range sum and one angle, or two angles). Mean and standard deviation values of tracking errors ... View full abstract»

  • Mixed triangulation/trilateration technique for emitter location

    Publication Year: 1986, Page(s):638 - 641

    The so-called `ghost¿¿ problem which complicates emitter location by triangulation can be circumvented by a mixed triangulation/trilateration technique. The ambiguities in either the spatial or time/frequency domain can be removed by the combined measurement of time difference of arrival (DTOA) and direction of arrival (DOA). The paper describes the concept of a mixed triangulation/trilateration e... View full abstract»

  • Spaceborne bistatic radar¿an overview

    It is now apparent that the technology is available to design a practical spaceborne radar. Such a system would provide a greatly improved capability for worldwide surveillance. A spaceborne radar transmitter coupled with passive airborne or ground-based receivers would vastly reduce the vulnerability of the receiver to electronic countermeasures or antiradiation missiles. It is the purpose of the... View full abstract»

    The paper discusses the use of `illuminators of opportunity¿¿ for bistatic radar systems. Experiments in the London area using the Crystal Palace transmitters are reported, including the use of TV pictures designed to make the transmission more closely resemble a pulsed radar signal. It is shown that the separation of targets from the direct signal and clutter requires extensive signal processing ... View full abstract»
