Passive bistatic radar (PBR) is the name given to a bistatic radar that makes use of emissions from broadcast, communications or radionavigation transmitters rather than a dedicated, co-operative radar transmitter. Such systems have a number of potential advantages. The receiver is passive and so potentially undetectable. There are many illumination sources that can be used, many of them of high power and favorably-sited. PBR receiver systems can often be rather simple and low cost, and there is no need for any licence for the transmitter. However, since the waveforms are not explicitly designed for radar use they may be ...
