Passive Tracking of Objects Using Bistatic Dual-Polarization Receivers
Paul D. Mountcastle
Publication Source: Patent US10451709B1
A system for detecting and/or tracking a moving object uses signals received from the object at two or more receivers, each of which is dual polarized. At each receiver, the component of the received signal associated with the polarization thereof is separated from the non-polarization-based component, and the modulation of the polarization-based component is used for locating and/or tracking the moving object.
