This article examines the multistatic passive radar target detection problem under uncalibrated receivers with direct-path interference. To this aim, we consider a passive multistatic radar consisting of several transmitters nonoverlapping in frequency with a common bandwidth and several spatially separated receivers without exploiting the reference channel. For uncalibrated, multichannel and multifrequency receivers and in the presence of direct-path interference signal, we model the target detection problem as a composite hypothesis testing problem and apply the Rao framework to obtain a closed-form test statistic. Monte Carlo simulation results are provided to illustrate the performance of the proposed Rao detector and compare it with several well-known passive radar target detection algorithms. The results show that the proposed detector significantly outperforms its counterparts for different multistatic configurations in terms of detection probability and false alarm regulation as well.

Abstract

This article examines the multistatic passive radar target detection problem under uncalibrated receivers with direct-path interference. To this aim, we consider a passive multistatic radar consisting of several transmitters nonoverlapping in frequency with a common bandwidth and several spatially separated receivers without exploiting the reference channel. For uncalibrated, multichannel and multifrequency receivers and in the presence of direct-path interference signal, we model the target detection problem as a composite hypothesis testing problem and apply the Rao framework to obtain a closed-form test statistic. Monte Carlo simulation results are provided to illustrate the performance of the proposed Rao detector and compare it with several well-known passive radar target detection algorithms. The results show that the proposed detector significantly outperforms its counterparts for different multistatic configurations in terms of detection probability and false alarm regulation as well.
