Passive Coherent Location (PCL) is a developing radar technique, in which the system processes reflections from opportunistic illumination sources in the environment for detection and tracking. Many developments and improvements of PCL implement pseudo-monostatic and bistatic radar configurations; however, with the proliferation of commercial communication systems, the spectrally dense environment suggests the use of a heterogenous multistatic PCL system. This paper develops error minimization criteria to adjust and optimize available resources to a wideband PCL receiver. The method introduces the concept of self ambiguity as an error metric and implements this as a criterion to test varying PCL scenarios with differing transmitter modulation waveforms. The paper compares this to available techniques and the global minimum error available.
