  author={Federico Canini and Annarita Di Lallo and Luca Timmoneri and Domenico Vigilante},
Purpose of this paper is the description of how to use the Digital-Television terrestrial Video (DTV) stations as a non-cooperative illuminator in bistatic radar. Based on [1] it is shown that the original DTV signal contains random and deterministic components. Analyzing the ambiguity function of the DTV signals, it is found that the deterministic components cause unwanted peaks around the desired peak pertaining to the useful echo thus the target detections is difficult to do and/or false… CONTINUE READING
