Bistatic and passive radar systems enjoy various advantages, which have been discussed in detail in Part III of Volume 1 of this book. Multistatic configurations, where multiple transmitters (Txs) and/or multiple receivers (Rxs) are located separately, are of particular importance in this context. They provide detection of a target from different aspect angles. Furthermore, the fusion of the measurements from different Tx/Rx pairs can be used to overcome the low quality of a single measurement. Associating measurements of the same target from different Tx/Rx combinations (i.e. multi-sensor association), as well as improving the target state estimate over time belongs to the tasks of target tracking. In this chapter, the tracking task is discussed for different passive radar systems. Solutions based on multiple hypothesis-tracking techniques are proposed and tested.
