Future radar systems are likely to be distributed, intelligent, multistatic and spectrally efficient, taking into account many of the concepts developed in this section of the book, and offering greater flexibility, greater robustness and lower cost than conventional single-platform monostatic approaches. This chapter describes the `intelligent radar network' and some of the developments that will be necessary for its realization. In particular, the resource management of a radar network, the means of communication between the nodes of the network, and geolocation and synchronization between the nodes of the network all represent significant challenges.
