Abstract

The benefits of multistatic radar have been well understood for decades, though the challenges of implementing such systems have limited their development and subsequent operational use. Multistatic radar’s performance enhancements, over standard monostatic radar, result from the cooperation and data-fusion between spatially separated radar nodes, however, to enable cooperation and data-fusion, some degree of node-to-node time and frequency synchronisation is critical. In this work, the use of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) GPS Disciplined Oscillators (GPSDO) as a source of indirect radar synchronisation is evaluated and the development, and subsequent testing, of a GPSDO based radar synchronisation system is presented.
