This paper proposes a bistatic High Frequency Surface Wave Radar (HFSWR) system for ocean current mapping. This system is composed of two remote sites. Both receive backscattered echoes as well as bistatic echoes transmitted by the other. An experiment was conducted on the coast of the North China Sea during January 2010, which proved effectiveness of the radar system.
