Paper Abstract

In the paper the analysis of the WiMAX signals for passive radar application is presented. Passive radar, or Passive Coherent Location (PCL) uses non-cooperative sources of radiation in order to detect targets. The detection is carried out by comparing the echo signal with the reference signal, obtained with a separate antenna or reconstructed from the received signal. The telecommunication signals which are often used by PCL are not designed for target detection, therefore, are not ideal for passive radar applications. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the usefulness of the WiMAX signal for the passive radar.
