Abstract : The capabilities of bistatic synthetic aperture radar to provide rapid update rate, real-time covert radar surveillance to the military user are considered. The spatial resolution and sensitivity achievable from a tactical system using a small RPV-borne transmitter and a static ground based receiver are discussed and the relative advantages of two distinct types of emission modulation are examined. Finally, a number of areas requiring further study are identified.
