Multistatic Radar Measurements

Despite unfortunate weather conditions, an multistatic radar experiment was set up in the vicinity of our office. It consisted of one C-band phased array transmitter, two digital beamforming receivers as well as two dual-channel radar target simulators.

With the experiment we intended to establish limitations and advantages of multistatic radar networks. Virtual targets generated with our target simulators served as reference targets. Different target speeds, radar cross sections and approach directions were simulated in order to test the detection capability of the radar.
