This book collects, reviews and analyses recent research on passive radars on moving platforms. Due to the nature of the typical radar applications performed by moving platforms and the signals of opportunity typically exploited for passive radar purposes, which are not designed for reception while in motion, the special case of passive radar mounted on moving platforms is highly challenging.

Passive Radars on Moving Platforms is intended for both passive radar experts and readers less familiar with the general topic of passive radar. The editors provide useful background information before fully exploring various research activities from a selection of working groups worldwide. An overview of operational systems is given, with considerations on multiple receiving channel calibration and hardware realization of radar systems based on the software defined radio (SDR) principle. The concluding chapter offers some outlook on what passive radar could look like in the near future, namely a component of a bigger architecture usually referred to as system of systems (SoS). Additionally, results of on-going activities related to new potential illuminators of opportunity for passive radar are covered.

Providing a thorough overview of techniques, challenges and applications that are enabled when a passive radar is operated from a moving platform, this book will be of interest to radar engineers, researchers into radar design, and the wider radar signal processing community.
