Abstract

Radar detection of small maritime targets is of great interest in the context of coastal and port security for prevention of activities such as smuggling and piracy. Multistatic radar and forward scatter radar offer detection advantages compared with conventional monostatic systems, such as advantageous multi-perspective target view for the former and target radar cross section enhancement for the latter. In this paper, experimental results are presented to characterize simultaneous measurements investigating the detection of a small inflatable boat by a multistatic and a forward scatter radar. These results are believed to be the first example of simultaneous experimental comparison of such systems.
