Abstract : A range-only multistatic radar system has a plurality of radar stations located in a square grid pattern. Each radar station has a plurality of low power pulsed transmitters and receivers that operate on omnidirection whip antennae. Echo information received by the receivers is transmitted to a computer wherein a technique is employed to deghost and identify real targets. The computer applies a range difference similarity test, a uniqueness test, and a position test to determine real targets from the plurality of echo returns received. (Author).
