monostatic radar

monostatic radar
A radar arrangement in which the transmitter and the receiver are located in the same place and usually form the same piece of radar equipment. This arrangement allows the transmitter to be synchronized with the receiver, and the timing method to measure the target range is simpler to implement.

The demonstrator will be based on a monostatic radar model, where the transmitter and receiver are co-located, but ESA hasn t ruled out a bistatic model where the receiver is in a different location and the system can transmit constantly.
Bistatic radar uses existing sources of illumination to detect and track targets passively, instead of the more conventional monostatic radar systems that actively send a signal and wait to receive a return echo.
Starting with a detailed look at monostatic radar, examining the development of the field as a whole, the book then goes on to:
