Paper Abstract

This paper sets up a new general clutter model for the hybrid bistatic space-based radar in which Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) is used as a passive receiver, and the transmitter is placed on the airplane or satellite. Clutter isorange contour and clutter ridge are simulated under a given geometry configuration based on this new model. Then we compare the angle-doppler relationship of clutter of the bistatic airborne radar with that of the hybrid bistatic space-based radar. We can see that the clutter characteristic of the hybrid bistatic system is highly sensitive to the high satellite velocity and the bistatic range, which is quite different from that of the bistatic airborne radar.
