Abstract:

Efforts were directed toward developing the ex pected correlation behavior of analog and clipper correlators processing non-stationary signals multiplicative noise may result in slightly degraded correlator performance though the de gradation is the same for the two correlators. Non-stationary noise may degrade analog processing gain whereas it appears to improve the processing by the clipper correlator. The development is restricted to the case of small signals buried in noise. A companion article presents the results of an experimental investigation designed to evaluate the developments in this report, as well as to investigate correlator behavior for the case of large signals.
