Bistatic radar has some properties that are distinctly different from monostatic radar. Recently bistatic radar has received attention for its potential to detect stealth targets due to enhanced target forward scatter. Furthermore, the feasibility of hitchhiker radar has been demonstrated, which allows passive radar receivers to detect and track targets. This thesis developed a software simulation package in Matlab that provides a convenient tool to examine the bistatic radar design parameters and predict system performance. The software model is suitable for instructional purposes due to its user-friendly graphical user interface. Several bistatic radar applications were used to illustrate the software features, and their results were analyzed and discussed.
