IRS 2024 Focus Session

“Passive Radar Technology” 

Passive radars do not have their own transmitters but rely on external sources called illuminators of opportunity. This technology has its limitations, however, also offers several advantages, such as covert operation, multistatic diversity, and lack of permit for electromagnetic radiation. 

The research in this area is very active and it includes investigation of new types of illuminators of opportunity, detection and classification of different types of targets (drones, helicopters) and new signal processing methods.
