This paper presents an approach for detection and tracking a micro-UAV using the multistatic radar NetRAD. Experimental trials were performed using NetRAD allowing for analysis of real data to assess the difficulty of detection and tracking of a micro-UAV target. The UAV detection is based on both time domain and micro-Doppler signatures, in order to enhance the discrimination between ground clutter and UAV returns. This micro-Doppler based procedure is shown to improve the clutter/target discrimination, in comparison to a Doppler-shift based procedure. The tracking approach is able to compensate for the limited quality measurement generated by each bistatic pair by fusing the measurements available from multiple bistatic pairs.
