    Satellite communications have advanced from the realm of science fiction to the commonplace in a period of less than 40 years. The paper outlines the birth and development of this new industry which was pioneered by the United States and the Soviet Union but has since become increasingly international, with growing capabilities in Western Europe, Japan, China and India. The technological developme... View full abstract»

  • Method for designing half-band delta-modulation fir filters

    Through proper use of a Hamming window, approximate relationships are established among the coefficients of half-band FIR filters, which may be realised conveniently as delta modulation (DM) filters by simple and economical hardware. The procedure is demonstrated by means of two design examples. Experimental results confirm the theoretical predictions. View full abstract»

    A very rapidly convergent solution (in the form of a likelihood ratio test) for the problem of detecting a discrete-time stochastic process in additive white Gaussian noise has been derived. This likelihood ratio test is applied to the problem of moving-target detection as encountered in an airport-surveillance radar system. Using real radar data, the receiver operating characteristics are obtaine... View full abstract»

  • Generalised WPD procedure for microprocessor-based signal detection

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):27 - 35
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1170 KB)

    The suboptimum detection procedure based on the weighting of partial decisions (WPD) was introduced as an improvement of one-bit-quantisation digital matched filtering, also known as binary matched filtering (BMF). The WPD is characterised by minimal additional hardware and software requirements but considerably better performance in comparison with BMF. A primary application of the WPD is the imp...

  • Parameter optimisation for an integrated radar detection and tracking system

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):36 - 44
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1036 KB)

    A radar system is considered in which the detection and tracking functions are completely integrated. The system parameters are then chosen to minimise the mean-square tracking error of the integrated system. An analytical result is applied which allows the impact of detection errors on tracking accuracy. This was the first known result of this nature, as usually detection and tracking are viewed ...

  • Application of efficient linear FM matched filtering algorithms to synthetic aperture radar processing

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):45 - 57
    Cited by:  Papers (53)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1716 KB)

    The applicability of two relatively new linear FM matched filtering algorithms to the processing of synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) data is examined and compared to the fast-convolution algorithm. The algorithms, called basic spectral analysis and the step transform, use the properties of the linear FM signal to achieve some significant performance improvements. The algorithms are evaluated on the ... View full abstract»

  • Adaptivity and design criteria of a latest-generation MTD processor

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):58 - 65
    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (875 KB)

    A latest-generation or `adaptive¿¿ moving target detector (A-MTD) digital processor is described. The A-MTD is based on three banks of filters, to cope with different levels of ground clutter. The paper includes: (i) the technique for the filter design, (ii) the trade-off for the number of bits to represent the filter coefficients (iii) some of the obtained filtering performances (iv) the analysis...
