bistatic radar

A radar system configuration with the receiver located at a site different from the transmitter.

In such a system, surfaces of constant range are ellipsoids with the transmitter and receiver sites as foci, and the component of target velocity that induces a Doppler frequency shift is the component normal to the ellipsoids.
