Abstract: To construct a linear barrier coverage, in case of the locations of multistatic radar are constrained, an optimization method using heterogeneous multistatic radar is proposed. This method proves the composition properties of the optimal linear barrier coverage sequence by studying the relationship between heterogeneous and homogeneous multistatic radars. Then, the optimization model is established underlying these properties. Besides, the restriction of the deployment location is taken as the constraint condition of the model. Aiming at the non-convexity and non-analyticity of the objective function in the model, an optimization algorithm combining integer linear programming and enumeration method is exploited. The algorithm solves the optimization problem in layers and segments according to the situation of restricted deployment. Furthermore, it determines the optimal barrier coverage sequence based on the minimum deployment cost criterion. Simulation experiments show that the performance and cost of the radar transmitter play an essential role in determining the optimization results. This method can obtain optimized results under the constraint of the location of multistatic radar.
