The bistatic radar idea comes in WW2 .The idea of commercial broadcast transmitters comes in 1980 and in 1985, TV waveform was used and in 1999 Lockheed Martins's Silent Sentry was developed. This paper deals with the velocity estimation of a moving target by using bistatic radar. The illuminating signal used is an FM-radio broadcast signal. The main problems associated with bistatic radars are the noise and DPI (Direct Path interference). The estimation is achieved by reducing noise and direct path interference using adaptive filtering technique. The performance is computed by using simulations.
