    The paper presents a comprehensive analysis of frame alignment strategies for time division multiplexed digital signals. Comparisons are made between algorthims recommended by CCITT and others requiring slightly more sophisticated terminal processing. The principal transition times (misalignment detection, false exit, acquisition and false entry times) form the basis for comparison. The enhanced a... View full abstract»

  • Performance of generalised AMF receivers for continuous phase modulation

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):541 - 547

    Partial-response continuous phase modulation (CPM) signals can in many cases yield power spectra with narrow mainlobe and also low sidelobes. The optimum receiver for these signals is sometimes complex. In the paper the idea of using a smaller signal set in the receiver than used by the transmitter is considered. This is done by means of using a generalised average matched filter (AMF) receiver. O... View full abstract»

  • HF spectral occupancy and frequency planning

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):548 - 557
    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (825 KB)

    The paper gives measurements of spectral occupancy for each ITU-defined user allocation, across the whole HF spectrum. Such measurements are being made currently during stable ionospheric conditions about midday and midnight, at the times of the winter and summer solstice, over a range of sunspot numbers. An application is given in which the occupancy results for a particular service (fixed in thi... View full abstract»

  • Spread-spectrum waveforms simplifying transform domain signal processing

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):558 - 560
    Cited by:  Papers (5)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (372 KB)

    In the paper a novel class of spread-spectrum waveforms is proposed which is based on spreading operations in the frequency domain. As a main advantage over conventional spread-spectrum waveforms, the proposed waveforms are especially well suited for transform domain correlation at low expense, because their Fourier spectra may be constructed from simple binary pseudonoise sequences. It will be sh... View full abstract»

  • Error propagation in decision feedback receivers

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):561 - 566
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (710 KB)

    The problem of assessing error propagation in decision-directed feedback receivers is considered. It is shown that useful bounds on error statistics can be obtained by modelling the error mechanism using stochastic state-transition diagrams and then employing state reduction techniques to enable the complexity of the problem to be contained. This provides a more widely applicable approach to obtai... View full abstract»

  • Simplified technique for bounding error statistics for DFB receivers

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):567 - 575
    Cited by:  Papers (10)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (875 KB)

    A new metric, termed `recovery distance¿¿, is introduced for decision feedback receivsers, and is shown to provide the basis for a simple technique for obtaining bounds on a wide range of error statistics. The error propagation process is modelled using stochastic state transition diagrams with merging of states having the same recovery distance, providing the simplification required to render tra...

  • Class of binary cipher sequences with best possible autocorrelation function

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):576 - 580
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (674 KB)

    A new class of binary sequences called here `m-like cipher sequences¿¿ are introduced which have rather interesting properties for use as cipher sequences. These are derived by interleaving the so-called `elementary m-sequences¿¿ along with some null sequences in a particular order. The resulting composite sequences are not m-sequences, but require deciphering and storage of a much larger number o... View full abstract»

  • New design procedure for digital filters based on a finite-state machine implementation

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):581 - 588
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1073 KB)

    The concept of a finite-state machine (FSM) is used in an attempt to cover the deficiencies of the conventional digital filter design procedure with respect to finite-word-length effects. The problem of synthesis is considered in detail and a procedure whereby the FSM mappings are designed to best model a given difference equation is presented. This procedure is based on a well known graph theory ... View full abstract»

    Asymptotic results are presented for the MUSIC and Kumaresan and Tufts spectral estimators. The paper makes use of results obtained by Sugiura, which are more accurate than those of Anderson. It is shown that the predictions are in good agreement with simulated results. View full abstract»

    The responses of adaptive and conventional acoustic array processors using data acquired from an underwater environment are compared. The data from a horizontal planar array with omnidirectional elements are processed using frequency-domain and element-space techniques to estimate the azimuthal noise anisotropy and to contrast the effectiveness of each processor. Three beamformers are represented:... View full abstract»

  • Eclipsing effects with high-duty-factor waveforms in long-range radar

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):598 - 603
    Cited by:  Papers (7)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (637 KB)

    The partial eclipsing of returns in long-range radar with a high-duty-factor waveform is considered, and two eclipsing zones are shown to exist. The effects on clutter levels, by virtue of increased range sidelobes, and on signal/noise ratio, pulsewidth and pulse amplitude are examined. It is shown that the enhancement of range sidelobes caused by eclipsing, and the associated clutter effects, do ... View full abstract»

  • Effect of adjacent channel interference and frequency-selective fading on outage of digital radio

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):604 - 612
    Cited by:  Papers (7)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (923 KB)

    Digital radio is affected by frequency-selective fading (FSF), which causes intersymbol interference (ISI), and by adjacent channel interference (ACI), which in its turn is also affected by the same FSF. Using a two-ray model for the FSF, the transfer function of the channel is H(f) = a[1 ¿¿ b exp ( ¿¿ j2¿¿¿¿(f ¿¿ f0))]. Outage in digital radio occurs when the bit error probability exceeds a criti...

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (945 KB)

    In the paper the radar detection of targets in sea clutter modelled by the compound K-distribution is examined from a statistical detection viewpoint. Optimum performance is determined for both fixed threshold and ideal constant false alarm rate (CFAR) receivers for targets modelled by Swerling cases 0, 1 and 2. In particular, the performance of dual threshold binary integrators is assessed. The c... View full abstract»

  • ESM processor system for high pulse density radar environments

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (692 KB)

    A radar ESM system performs two functions: warning of impending threats and surveillance to determine radar activities. Automatic radar ESM systems are passive radar receivers which receive emissions from other platforms, measure the parameters of each pulse received and thus sort the emissions to enable determination of the radar parameters for each emitter. These parameters are then compared wit... View full abstract»
