Passive Bistatic WiMAX Radar for Marine Surveillance.
2010 IEEE RADAR CONFERENCE.
(pp. 188 - 193).
In this study we investigate the feasibility of using passive bistatic radar to exploit WiMAX communication signals as transmitters of opportunity for marine surveillance. The range and Doppler characteristics of such a system are first assessed through ambiguity function analysis on a typical set of WiMAX data transmission waveforms. Theoretical simulations are then used to investigate the ability of passive WiMAX radar for detecting marine vessels within three busy shipping areas in the UK, and in the presence of noise and interference signals. The initial analysis shows a range resolution of 5.6 m is achievable. Additionally, the simulations demonstrate specific scenarios where WiMAX radar may be used as a low cost surveillance device for detecting both small and large marine vessels in port areas and open waters.
