    Our goal was to provide an overview of a circle of emerging ideas in the area of waveform scheduling for active radar. Principled scheduling of waveforms in radar and other active sensing modalities is motivated by the nonexistence of any single waveform that is ideal for all situations encountered in typical operational scenarios. This raises the possibility of achieving operationally significant... View full abstract»

    The design of radar waveforms has received considerable attention since the 1950s. In 1953, P.M. Woodward (1953; 1953) defined the narrowband radar ambiguity function or, simply, ambiguity function. It is a device formulated to describe the effects of range and Doppler on matched filter receivers. Woodward acknowledged the influence that Shannon's communication theory from 1948 had on his ideas; a... View full abstract»

    This article shows that suitably transmitted and processed, radar waveforms based on Golay sequences provide new primitives for adaptive transmission that enable better detection and finer resolution, while managing computational complexity at the receiver. The ability to exploit space-time adaptive processing is limited by the computational power available at the receiver, and increased flexibili... View full abstract»

    In this article, we explore the adaptive design of radar polarization waveforms for optimal performance, when the statistical properties of the target and clutter are unknown. We focus on a closed-loop system that sequentially estimates the target and clutter scattering parameters, and then uses these estimates to select the polarization of the subsequent waveforms. We demonstrate that the radar s... View full abstract»

    Waveform-agile sensing is fast becoming an important technique for improving sensor performance in applications such as radar, sonar, biomedicine, and communications. The paper provided an overview of research work on waveform-agile target tracking. From both control theoretic and information theoretic perspectives, waveforms can be selected to optimize a tracking performance criterion such as min... View full abstract»

    Echolocating mammals such as bats, whales and dolphins have been using waveform diversity for over 50 million years. Synthetic systems such as sonar and radar have existed for fewer than 100 years. Given the extraordinary capability of echolocating mammals it seems self-evident that designers of radar (and sonar) systems may be able to learn lessons that may potentially revolutionize current radar...

    Statistical models for reverse engineering gene regulatory networks are surveyed in this article. To provide readers with a system-level view of the modeling issues in this research, a graphical modeling framework is proposed. This framework serves as the scaffolding on which the review of different models can be systematically assembled. Based on the framework, we review many existing models for ... View full abstract»

  • Mean squared error: Love it or leave it? A new look at Signal Fidelity Measures

    In this article, we have reviewed the reasons why we (collectively) want to love or leave the venerable (but perhaps hoary) MSE. We have also reviewed emerging alternative signal fidelity measures and discussed their potential application to a wide variety of problems. The message we are trying to send here is not that one should abandon use of the MSE nor to blindly switch to any other particular... View full abstract»

    Factors influencing human behavior have seldom appeared in signal processing disciplines. Therefore, the goals of the article are to illustrate why human factors are important, identify emerging issues strongly related to signal processing, and to demonstrate that signal processing can be effectively used to model, analyze, and perform behavior forensics for multimedia social networks. Since media... View full abstract»

    The signal processing issues involved in cognitive radios are quite diverse and have led us on a figurative journey from Berkeley, California to Washington D.C. A holistic signal processing perspective shows that while the goal of reducing the regulatory overhead is admirable, everything will have to be put together in a balanced way in order to realize the true potential of this wireless revoluti...

    This article provides a compact overview of the history, technology, and performance of MPEG Surround. The technology of MPEG Surround is based on the spatial audio coding (SAC) principle: In the encoder, a mono- or stereophonic down- mix is generated from the multichannel input signal, and additional parametric side information is extracted to guide the subsequent up-mix procedure in the decoder....
