An extensive review of nonlinear radar systems is performed. Emphasis is placed on designs relevant to detecting RF electronics that were not intentionally manufactured as visible radar targets. The state of the art in nonlinear radar is conveyed by presenting high-level system architecture, explaining the rationale behind design decisions pertaining to that architecture, and listing the specifications that nonlinear radar designers have achieved. The authors' recent advancements in nonlinear radar technology are summarized.
