Signal Design for Active Sensing and Communications (2014)
Abstract / truncated to 115 words
Man-made active sensing systems such as active radar and sonar have been a vital part of our civilization's advancement in navigation, defense, meteorology, and space exploration. Modern active sensing systems rely heavily on the significant progress in the science and technology of communications made within the last century. Not surprising, the fast growing communications technology has changed each and every aspect of our everyday lives. This thesis is concerned with signal design for improving the performance of active sensing and communication systems: The target detection and estimation performance of the active sensing systems can be considerably improved by a judicious design of the probing signals. Similarly, signal design has a crucial role in the implementation ... toggle 31 keywordsactive sensing – radar – signal design – waveform diversity – correlation – beam-pattern – beamforming – information-theoretic criteria – communications – sequence design – efficient algorithms – compressed sensing – waveform synthesis – interference – receive filter – robust design – transmit sequence – clutter – peak-to-average-power ratio – code design – unimodular codes – constant-modulus – polyphase sequences – autocorrelation – CDMA – spread spectrum – frequency hopping – welch bound – finite alphabet – complementary sets – zero correlation zone
