Abstract: We introduce the notion of diversity order as a performance measure for distributed radar systems. We define the diversity order of a radar network as the slope of the probability of detection (PD) versus SNR evaluated at PD =0.5. We prove that the communication bandwidth between the sensors and the fusion center does not affect the growth in diversity order. We also prove that the OR rule leads to the best performance and its diversity order grows as (log K). We then introduce the notion of a random radar network to study the effect of geometry on overall system performance. We approximate the distribution of the SINR at each sensor by an exponential distribution, and we derive the moments for a specific system model. We then analyze multistatic systems and prove that each sensor should be large enough to cancel the interference in order to exploit the available spatial diversity.
