The history of passive radar dates back to the early days of radar in 1935 when the Daventry experiment was conducted in the UK. It continues in WW II with the German Klein Heidelberg passive radar and receives new interest today, as passive covert radar (PCR) systems like Silent Sentry, Homeland Alerter 100, Aulos and PARADE are ready for operation. The future of PCR will strongly depend on the availability of transmitters of opportunity such as FM-radio and digital broadcast networks.
