This thesis documents the research on ambiguity in target position measurements by a time difference of arrival passive detection system when receiving waveforms with a high pulse repetition frequency. The thesis includes a detailed derivation of a set of multilateral equations used to compute target position estimates. A pulse correlation algorithm designed to mitigate the ambiguity incurred with high pulse repetition frequency waveforms is discussed. Simulation is used to analyze the performance of the pulse correlation algorithm.
