Bistatic radar is different from conventional (monostatic) radar in that the transmitting and receiving antennas are in separate locations. For purposes of this thesis the transmitting radar will be assumed to be located up to 100 miles from the bistatic radar receiver. It will have a circular scan antenna with a constant rotation rate. The plan position indicator (PPI) display of the video from the bistatic radar receiver has both angular and range distortion caused by the wide separation of the transmitting and receiving antennas. The bistatic radar processor receives video signals from the bistatic receiver and processes them to obtain the information required to synchronize the PPI display's rotation in rate and phase to the rotation of the transmitting antenna and to correct the range errors . This thesis discusses the design and fabrication of a simplified version of the processor and how it accomplishes the functions mentioned above.
