In this paper, we estimate Doppler frequency of a maneuvering target being tracked by passive radar using two types of particle filter, the first is “Maximum Likelihood Particle Filter” (MLPF) and the second is “Minimum Variance Particle filter” (MVPF). By simulating the passive radar system that has the bistatic geometry “Digital Video Broadcasting-Terrestrial (DVB-T) transmitter / receiver” with these two types, we can estimate the Doppler frequency of the maneuvering target and compare the simulation results for deciding which type gives better performance.
