A useful way to introduce a bistatic radar is to define it, outline its operation, and summarize its utility. The basic definition is straightforward: a radar operating with separated transmitting and receiving antennas. How far the antennas are separated is sometimes included in the definition and can be ambiguous. Variations of a bistatic radar have been developed, the most significant of which is the multistatic radar. In its basic form, a multistatic radar uses two or more separated receiving antennas operating with a single transmitting antenna. These topics are discussed in Section 1.2. While most of the material in this book is about bistatic radars, multistatic radars can be considered extensions of bistatic radar and are treated as such, usually in special sections and in one case as a separate chapter of the book (Chapter 11).
