A new framework for the ambiguity function for a bistatic radar is presented. Modeling of radar measurements of a slowly fluctuating point target involving delay and Doppler shift is considered. Effects of bistatic geometry on these measurements are discussed in detail. It is shown by means of two examples that geometry factors play an important role in the shape of the ambiguity function for a bistatic radar as the system configuration is varied.
