Abstract:

This report presents an analysis of the clutter characteristics as observed from a radar platform either the monostatic or the bistatic configuration, airborne or stationary. The study shows the effects of the system parameters, particularly the system geometry, on the observed clutter characteristics. A preliminary study of adaptive space-time processing for multistatic active radar is also included in the report. There are two major factors that need to be investigated further development of space-time processing for the multistatic system 1 the correlation of the observed interference among the receivers and 2 the effects of system geometry on the observed reverberation characteristics. The analysis shows that problem interferences are uncorrelated. However, this may not be the case when multipath occurs.
