We investigate methods of co-existence between radar and communications systems. Each system typically considers the other system a source of interference. Consequently, the traditional solution is to isolate the two systems spectrally or spatially. By considering a cooperative radar and communications signaling scheme, we derive achievable bounds on performance for a receiver that observes communications and radar return in the same frequency allocation. We assume the radar and communications operations to be a single joint system. Bounds on performance of the joint system are measured in terms of data information rate for communications and a novel radar estimation information rate for the radar.
