Detectability of burst-like signals


Journal Article

The detectability of signals with burst-like qualities is investigated. Detectability is interpreted in terms of the performance of the optimum (likelihood ratio) detector for this type of signal. At low false alarm probabilities, long signal bursts interspersed by long periods of signal absence are found to be more detectable than short, rapid bursts. Essentially opposite results are true for shorter bursts. Copyright © 1971 by The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.
