Abstract : The mapping is discussed of radar target space by means of a passive receiver onto a PPI-type presentation. This is accomplished by monitoring t e signals produced by an operating but noncooperative radar of known location. An important case is discussed in which the mapping is approximately two-dimensional. A three-dimensional case is also discussed, although in general, the three-dimensional problem encounters targetsorting difficulties. (Author)
