Due to the progress made in recent decades, progress in the development of hardware and especially software, the performance of passive radar systems today corresponds in many respects to that of conventional radars for monitoring of air and Seeräumen. With regard to the action against stealth aircraft they will even have expected special achievements. Nevertheless, the demand for such systems so far seems to be rather low.

Passive radar refers to a class of radar systems, the objects locating by the processing of reflections of the signals from the receiver remote, non-cooperative transmitter and track. In this case must be as closely as possible known location and technical characteristics of the non-cooperative stations. They are a special case of bistatic radar systems, which use for the simplification of the relation between transmitter and receiver signals of cooperative, belonging to the system transmitters. Systems that are not reflected by targets, but by systems on board of the target systems (etc. radar, communications, navigation) process immediately emitted signals are sometimes also referred to as passive radars, but strictly speaking sensors for electronic reconnaissance.
