Adaptive realization of optimum receiver for sporadic-recurrent waveform in noise


Journal Article (Academic article)

Application of adaptive processing techniques to detection of signals in noise; it is shown how theory of signal detectability can be extended to include optimum receiver design for problems of this type; problem of detecting signal composed of fixed waveform that is initially uncertain but learnable, that recurs in time in uncertain and unlearnable manner; optimum receiver provides yes-no decision about presence of such recurrence phenomena when it is in noise; receiver is to be designed to make decision over nonfixed interval of time, (0, t), where t remains variable; problem is formulated in terms of overall optimization problem in detection theory; receiver memory requirements.
