In order to solve the problem of optimizing deployment for multistatic radar,an optimum deployment method adopting unequal barrier coverage is proposed.This method employs the relationship among the unequal coverage barriers to construct constraints,and divides the optimization problem into two sub-problems:the optimization problem of a single deployment line and the optimization problem of the combination of unequal barriers.Then,based on the optimal deployment condition of a single deployment line,the exhaustive method is used to solve this optimal deployment problem of a single deployment line.Moreover,according to the minimum deployment cost criterion,the integer linear programming is used to solve the optimization problem of the unequal barrier combination.Meanwhile the optimal deployment parameters are determined.Simulation results reveal that,compared with the existing similar methods,the proposed optimum deployment method can achieve lower deployment costs and requires fewer transmitters.

Key words: barrier coverage, optimal placement, receivers, transmitters, multistatic radar
