Preliminary results on the use of multistatic radar and micro-Doppler analysis to detect and discriminate between micro-drones hovering carrying different payloads are presented. Two suitable features related to the centroid of the micro-Doppler signature have been identified and used to perform classification, investigating also the added benefit of using information from a multistatic radar as opposed to a conventional monostatic system. Very good performance with accuracy above 90% has been demonstrated for the classification of hovering micro-drones.
