A multistatic radar system contains multiple spatially diverse monostatic radar or bistatic radar components with a shared area of coverage. An important distinction of systems based on these individual radar geometries is the added requirement for some level of data fusion to take place between component parts. The spatial diversity afforded by multistatic systems allows different aspects of a target to be viewed simultaneously. The potential for information gain can give rise to a number of advantages over conventional systems. Multistatic radar is often referred to as "multisite" or "netted" radar and is comparable with the idea of macrodiversity in communications.

The function of a part of the human brain known as Wernicke's area is to enable us to comprehend written and spoken language. It is located posterior to the primary auditory complex in the left temporal lobe of the cerebral cortex , the part of the brain where information processing of all kinds takes place. Wernicke's area is connected to another brain region involved in language processing known as Broca's area. Located in the lower portion of the left frontal lobe , Broca's area controls motor functions involved with speech production.
Dither is an intentionally applied form of noise used to randomize quantization error , preventing large-scale patterns such as color banding in images. Dither is routinely used in processing of both digital audio and video data, and is often one of the last stages of mastering audio to a CD. A common use of dither is converting a grayscale image to black and white , such that the density of black dots in the new image approximates the average gray-level in the original. Airplane bombers used mechanical computers to perform navigation and bomb trajectory calculations.
