Abstract:

We present a methodology for the modeling of certain non-stationary and non-gaussian random time series data with application to weak signal detection. Some components of the noise, which give it its nongaussian characteristics, can be individually modeled, synthesized and subtracted to provide a gaussian residual. Further, it is shown that this process can also be carried out when signals are present. The proposed methodology is applied to some Arctic Acoustic data using a combination of adaptive differential quantization and adaptive signal estimation algorithms based on singular-value-decomposition of a data matrix which we have developed. The combination of adaptive differential quantization with low-rank approximations to data matrices or estimated covariance matrices is believed to be a new and effective method for multivariable, robust, adaptive detection.
