This paper proposes a new algorithm for tracking time-varying channels in impulsive noise environment using a robust Kalman filter. It employs a simple dynamical model of the channel, where the changes in the impulse response coefficients are due entirely to the innovations of the Kalman filter. This reduces the arithmetic complexity, while offering reasonable good performance. The robust Kalman filter is used to restrain the adverse effect of impulsive noise and provide estimates of the covariance matrices of the state and measurement noises. The noisy channel estimates from the Kalman filter can be used to estimate the parameters of the channel coefficients when they are assumed to follow an AR model. Finally, the two processes can be coupled together to further improve the performance. Simulation results show that the new algorithm gives more stable performance than the conventional methods under impulsive noise environment.
