A new parameter estimation method for linear chirp signal is proposed. This method utilizes the Discrete Fractional Fourier Transform (DFRFT) along with Bowtie Chirplet Transform to estimate the amplitude and phase parameters of multi-component chirp signals. DFRFT is used for estimating amplitude parameter whereas the chirp rate and initial frequency are estimated using Chirplet Transform. Performance of the proposed method in noise is analyzed by Monte- Carlo simulation for different Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR). Good performance was achieved at SNR as low as -10 dB.
