A novel cooperative radar-communications system is proposed in this paper, where the communications base station acts as a bistatic radar receiver. Thanks to the cooperation between the two systems, the radar can benefit from an additional target channel. It is shown, using both analytical results and simulations, that the radar can improve its estimation performance in the proposed scenario. Radar waveform optimization based on Cramér-Rao Bound minimization is also presented in this paper. Using the obtained power allocation solutions it is shown that in the proposed cooperative scenario the radar gains an additional degree of freedom for optimally using its power budget.
