Abstract
The characterizing feature of multistatic sensor systems is the inclusion of geographically independent receivers that might receive echoes from any source. We develop a simple analytic theory to predict detection probability, and use it to study pattern optimization, cost/effectiveness, reliability and the relative attractiveness of multistatic versus monostatic systems.
