Abstract:

This report considers the adaptive detection of renewal processes whose inter-arrival times are Gamma distributed. It is shown that the optimum detector exhibits a two-dimensional estimator-correlator structure for the two pertinent parameters. When the underlying statistics are partially known, the estimates appearing in the receiver cannot be implemented. Three suboptimum schemes with surprisingly good small sample performance are derived and compared.
