Abstract

Coherent detection for multistatic radar is generally described in ways that obscure its underlying geometrical structure. This paper presents a view of multistatic radar in which the radar transmission essentially labels position-velocity space with subspaces. The detector for a target with a particular position and velocity is thus a matched subspace detector applied to the received signals. Within this framework, the ambiguity function takes a relatively simple form involving relative path losses. Furthermore, it is shown to be bounded by a function which purely geometric, in that it depends only on the waveforms and the geometry of the multistatic radar.
