(engineering)
Conventional radar, in which the transmitter and receiver are at the same location and share the same antenna; in contrast to bistatic radar.

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.

However, most of the existing research related to m-D effect has focused on the analysis and extraction of m-D signature in monostatic radar systems.
Monostatic Radar Cross Section of a Dielectric Sphere
Similarly, one of the main techniques employed to diminish a target's monostatic radar cross section (RCS) is based on the modification of its shape so that most part of the energy impinging on it is redirected towards directions different from the source.
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.
Two-dimensional vector current plotting of the surface current and two-dimensional plotting of the monostatic radar cross section are available.
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.
Most radar systems in use today are monostatic radar systems, i.
Starting with a detailed look at monostatic radar, examining the development of the field as a whole, the book then goes on to:
Current state of the art millimeter wave portal imaging systems [3] are based on monostatic radar and Fourier inversion [10].
Development of the duplexer and the shift from decametric to centimetric wavelengths soon led to universal adoption of monostatic radar systems.
A monostatic radar has the receiver and transmitter collocated with a common antenna for both receive and transmit functions.
However, these models are suitable for monostatic radar.
