Abstract:

The investigation showed that controlled search techniques can improve the efficiency of signal detection. In particular, for a given frame time, controlling the direction of search allows one to reduce the average radiated power. Allowing a variety of possible signal forms the capacity permitted in delay time and doppler spread, fluctuations in signal intensity reduces the gain achieved by using controlled search procedures.
