The passive methods of detection and ranging of radiating targets use the information contained in the structure of the wave front at the aperture of a receiving antenna. In the method described here, the information used is the indeterminacy of the moment of signal radiation. The dispersion of an optimum estimate of the range is calculated for a rectangular antenna. It is shown that the model proposed here is preferable to other models used in passive detection and ranging.
