Radar system with the backlight pseudolites

Use of global navigation satellite systems radiation for solving of radar problems

Anatolii G. Laush, Vladyslav I. Lutsenko, Iryna V. Lutsenko


The possibility of using radiation of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) for the detection of air targets is discussed. Relations for evaluation the detection range are obtained. The requirements for the degree of suppression of the direct signal lights are suggested. The requirements for receiving systems located on the low Earth orbit satellites to overcome the challenges of the global radar are proposed. The range of target detection when simplify signals of backlight pseudolites are used, is received. A bistatic radar system with the backlight pseudolites is presented.
