Radar in which successive antenna lobes are sequentially engaged to provide a tracking capability without physical movement of the antenna.
A radar arrangement in which there are many widely spaced transmitters and receivers. All of them cooperate together to form a sensor system that is highly capable and immune to countermeasures. Besides being costly, the major technical problem is in synchronizing the various elements of the system.
The editors make good use of individual contributors' expertise in covering the history of bistatic and multistatic radar systems, Fluttar distant early warning (DEW)-line gap-filler radar, missile attack warning applications, planetary exploration, air surveillance, ionospheric measurements and wind measurements.
