Abstract : This invention relates to the field of radar signal processing within a radar receiver system. Bistatic coherent radar displays find increasing tactical application in meeting air surveillance needs where reliance upon radiation from either a cooperative or non-cooperative transmitter is appropriate. The use of coherent-upon-receive techniques and digital signal processing in receivers of this type and the ability to use non-coherent target illuminating sources operating in a variety of radar frequency bands has made equipment of this type increasingly useful in modern radar detection and tracking.
