Abstract:

Examples of two and three dimensional phase demodulation problems are presented. Computer realizations for the optimal nonlinear phase estimator are discussed in detail, with emphasis on parallel computer architectures. Implementation of the nonlinear filter on various computer architectures, including the CDC66007600, CDC STAR-100, Illiac IV, the CRAY-1, and the Floating Point System AP120B is reviewed. Detailed Monte Carlo performance analysis is presented for the two-dimensional system, while partial results are included for the three dimensional case. Implications concerning the ideal computer architecture for nonlinear filter realization are discussed.
