Abstract

Limited spectral access motivates radar and communications technologies that can cooperate effectively. We briefly discuss the recent advancements in the fields of joint radar-communications and RF convergence to motivate a discussion of joint radar-communications network topologies. We demonstrate that MIMO spatial diversity and multi-static sensing modalities can be leveraged by a radar subsystem to massively increase effective coverage area while simultaneously providing the standard communications performance improvement. We also demonstrate that certain topologies can support a massive increase in communications user density without adversely affecting radar performance.
