Abstract
A radar system usually consist of a transmitter (sender) and a receiver. The sender emits probing pulses of electro-magnetic waves in predetermined directions. The properties of these waves are changed when they are reflected by the targets towards the receiver. This enables the radar to detect and locate the unknown targets (threats). This type of radars are sometimes referred to as the active radars. On the other hand, passive radars which are essentially receiver-only radars have gained considerable research interest over the past decades. In passive radars, illuminators of opportunity which are often radio and television (TV) stations [1], are used for target detection.
