The ionospheric sounding experiments conducted in the 1920s, principally in the United States and United Kingdom, can be considered a precursor of modern radar experiments, including bistatic radar. The purpose of these experiments was to confirm the existence of the Heavyside-Kennelly layer, the lower layer of the ionized region in the upper atmosphere that creates a sky wave propagation path for long-range communications. 2. The target was, of course, the ionosphere. Both the ground wave and the sky wave reflected from the ionosphere were detected and made visible via a rotating mirror in an amplitude versus time display—similar to an A-scope [159].

They, too, made calculations to predict the beat frequencies. 4b). As Watson-Watt [170] reports, these observations were generally overlooked at the time. In January 1935, following the first meeting of the British Committee for the Scientific Survey of Air Defense, Arnold Wilkins suggested to Watson-Watt that radio waves might be used for the detection of aircraft. Wilkins was undoubtedly aware of the earlier British Post Office observations [159, 171]. Watson-Watt immediately drafted a memorandum incorporating Wilkins's findings, entitled "Detection and location of aircraft by radio methods," which is reproduced in [159].

The concept of a bistatic radar was first documented in the August 1917 edition of The Electrical Experimenter, when its editor, Hugo Gernsbach, interviewed Nikola Tesla on methods of "subjecting [submerged] enemy submarines" [163]. S. Swords in his excellent account of the early history of radar [159], Tesla is quoted as follows: .
