Abstract

This paper presents analysis of data captured with the NeXtRAD multistatic radar system during a fortnight of experimental trials in December 2019. The trials saw, for the first time, the NeXtRAD system capturing interleaved X-band and L-band measurements of multiple UAVs in simultaneous monostatic and bistatic configurations. Analysis is presented of the UAV’s micro-Doppler signatures, permitting a discussion into the challenges some UAV platforms present for reliable detection. Comparisons are also made between X-band and L-band monostatic and bistatic UAV radar backscatter allowing conclusions to be drawn over the benefits of particular radar configurations for aiding UAV detection.
