Abstract:

Nonparametric statistics have been previously applied to spectral data in order to detect narrow band signals. Here we show the degradation in performance due to the presence of an interfering signal. A modified decision scheme is proposed to overcome this problem. It is shown that with this new technique the presence of even a strong interfering signal does not seriously affect the ability to detect signals. Author
