Paper Abstract

A Beamforming Network (BN) concept of Uniform Linear Array (ULA) and Uniform Circular Array (UCA) dipole configuration designed to multistatic passive radar is considered in details. In the case of UCA configuration, computationally efficient procedure of beamspace transformation from UCA to virtual ULA configuration with omnidirectional coverage is utilized. If effect, the idea of the proposed solution is equivalent to the techniques of antenna array factor shaping dedicated to ULA structure. Finally, exemplary results from the computer software simulations of elaborated spatial filtering solutions to reference and surveillance channels are provided and discussed.
