Abstract
Vexcel proposes to make measurements and perform analysis regarding monostatic-bistatic equivalence phenomenology using a unique data set that has not been considered in the past for this purpose. Almost simultaneously acquired bistatic and monostatic imagery along the bistatic bisector direction will be compared. Comparison results will be analyzed so as to understand the implication of the monostatic/bistatic equivalence theorem on using "virtual phase centers" as components in clutter-cancellation moving target detectors. A new means of target detection through the exploitation of the breakdown of monostatic-bistatic equivalence will be investigated.
