Abstract

Passive radar offers several advantages over ubiquitous active systems. These advantages include low system costs and low power requirements. These attributes make it feasible for passive radar systems to be widely deployed in remote areas for applications such as national border security. Software-defined radio allows flexible passive radar systems to be quickly implemented in software with a minimum of hardware. The purpose of this research is to implement a passive radar system using software-defined radio and assess its performance. This thesis details the implementation of such a system and presents analysis of data collected with the system.
