The earliest documentation of bistatic radar phenomenology appears to have been by British Post Office (herein denoted as GPO) engineers in 1932. Similar documentation was published in the United States by Bell Telephone Laboratory (BTL) engineers in 1933, followed by a U.S. patent in 1934 issued to Naval Research Laboratory engineers. Up until 1934 the NRL work had been classified, but when the BTL results were published, NRL quickly declassified their work and applied for a patent. This appendix reviews these three publications to place them in the context of later bistatic radar developments, and to round out the early history of bistatic radars. They are reviewed in reverse order of publication, simply because more information is contained in the later ones.
