Now-a-days, most of radars are monostatic in which one antenna or a pair of antennas positioned at the same point is used for transmitting and receiving electromagnetic waves. Multistatic radar systems can be used in many applications such as homeland security, anti-air defense, anti-missile defense, ship's navigation and traffic control systems. Multistatic radars, which are capable of detecting and tracking flying objects in three-dimension coordinate systems, are simulated in this paper. The location and velocity of flying objects as well as their radar cross sections are computed. The object's path is also estimated by tracking the object.
