Abstract:

This report presents work undertaken on Multistatic Radar Sea Clutter over the period October 2012 to April 2014. A number of topics have been addressed as follows 1 NATO SET-185 is a research collaboration panel on sea clutter involving 9 nations. UCL has participated in collaborative work and meetings supported by this grant. 2 Low grazing angle sea clutter models. Differences between existing empirically derived models for average sea clutter backscatter have been investigated and compared with Propagation and EM scatter modeling. A number of potential explanations for the differences are proposed. 3 Multistatic radar measurement accuracy. The evaluation of measurement accuracy for a multistatic radar system is a difficult and complicated task. Work has been undertaken to derive a straightforward method, which is presented in this report.
