Abstract:

This study lies in that area of research that is concerned with the improvement of long-range detection techniques. By extending the well-known concept of a matched filter to include a receiver with several elements and by using a few simple examples, it is shown that current ideas about the optimum use of an antenna provide answers to only a few special aspects of the general problem. The problem of extracting weak signals from interfering noise may be found in the general area of Information Theory.
