What information is available for detecting or inferring the presence of an object in the absence of an illumination signal (i.e., negative radar)?

The Defense Systems Information Analysis Center (DSIAC) received a technical inquiry requesting information on a system that uses a detection scheme in the absence of an illumination signal. A DSIAC subject matter expert provided information pertaining to the remote sensing of objects in the presence or absence of an illuminating energy/signal. Most of the applications are pertinent to the terrestrial and atmospheric sciences research fields; however, applications relevant to the autonomous vehicles industry in the civilian and defense sectors are exponentially growing.
