As part of my undergraduate degree at the University of Aberdeen, I completed an undergraduate thesis. In my thesis, I considered the concept of a multi-static passive radar system capable of tracking commercial civil aircraft using transmitters of opportunity.
A position error in my radar model is defined as the difference between the computed, estimated, or measured value and the true, specified, or theoretically correct value. Any measurement made or position estimated by a radar system there is an associated error. Here I aim to identify the errors associated with a multi-static radar system’s geometry, where they originate, and how to separate them from other system errors to create a model.
