Abstract:

In a multi-static radar MSR the transmitreceive aperture is divided into a number of sub-apertures that can be placed in various locations relative to each other. These locations can be chosen to optimize the performance of the radar in terms of some specific task. Two multi-static approaches have been investigated 1. Closely spaced apertures distributed aperture radar DAR 2. Widely spaced apertures Realizing the greater capability of MSRs requires unique waveform and signal processing approaches. A computer simulation has been developed that permits the analysis of MSR signal processing. This paper presents the results of a series of experiments to validate the results of that simulation.
