We develop a novel approach improving existing target localization algorithms for distributed multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radars based on bistatic range measurements (BRMs). In the proposed algorithms, we estimate the target position with auxiliary parameters consisting of both the target–transmitter distances and the target–receiver distances (hence, “double-sided") in contrast to the existing BRM methods. Furthermore, we apply the double-sided approach to multistage BRM methods. Performance improvements were demonstrated via simulations and a limited theoretical analysis was attempted for the ideal two-dimensional case.
