GBSAR (Ground-Based Synthetic Aperture Radar) systems are popular remote sensing instruments for detecting the ground changes of landslides, glaciers, open pits, as well as for detecting small displacements of large structure as bridges and dams. Recently (2017) a novel mono/bistatic GBSAR configuration has been proposed to acquire two different components of the displacement of the targets in the field of view. In this paper the bistatic theory of GBSAR is developed, formulas for range and angular resolutions are derived. Finally theoretical findings are experimentally verified
