The problem of estimating the signal-to-noise ratio for time-hopping binary pulse position modulated signals, time- hopping binary phase shift keying signals, and direct-sequence binary phase shift keying signals in an ultra-wide bandwidth (UWB) system is studied. Both an additive white Gaussian noise channel and a multipath fading channel are considered. Several new estimators are derived by making use of different properties of the UWB signals. The performances of the estimators are examined and compared in terms of their root-mean-squared errors. Numerical results show that they have excellent performances when operating in an ultra-wide bandwidth system.
