This paper addresses the issue of spatial diversity in radar applications. The has been an increased need for information via radio frequency (RF) detection of airborne and ground targets while at the same time the electromagnetic spectrum available for commercial and military applications has been eroding. Typically, information concerning ground and air targets is obtained via monostatic radar. Increased information is often equated with increased bandwidth in these monostatic radar systems. However, geometric diversity obtained through multistatic radar operation also affords the user the opportunity to obtain additional information concerning these targets. With the appropriate signal processing, this translates directly into increased probability of detection and reduced probability of false alarm. In the extreme case, only discrete Ultra Narrow Band (UNB) frequencies of operation may be available for both commercial and military applications. As such, the need for geometric diversity becomes imperative.
