This paper describes key features of a bistatic operation in the hydroacoustic systems, his
performance model and constraints imposed by environment and propagation conditions in
shallow water. The architecture and construction of bistatic systems, their features and requirements
has been presented. The application of bistatic systems, especially in protection
systems, has been presented as barriers protecting anchorage or harbour, barriers protecting
straits or entries to the harbour. Attention was paid on possibility of cooperation among existing,
commonly available sonars and bistatic acoustics devices.
Keywords: bistatic, multistatic, sonar, protection.
