Since the seminal paper by Marzetta from 2010, the Massive MIMO paradigm in communication systems has changed from being a theoretical scaled-up version of MIMO, with an infinite number of antennas, to a practical technology. [] Key Result Our results imply that there always exists a sufficient number of antennas for which the performance requirements are satisfied, without any a priori knowledge of the clutter statistics. This is referred to as the Massive MIMO regime of the radar system.
