Abstract:

The detection of periodic signals of arbitrary wave shape with random time delay in additive white Gaussian noise, is a problem of practical significance in radar and communication applications. In this thesis, the analysis and design of optimum and suboptimum receivers for detecting signals as described above has been carried out. The design of optimum in minimum probability of error, Pe sense receivers is based on the likelihood ratio test under the assumption of low SNR conditions. The design of suboptimum receivers is based on the heuristic approaches that intuitively yield reasonably good performance. Examples have been analyzed in order to present numerical results in graphical form on the performance of the receivers under different assumptions of wave ships and p.d.f. on the random time delay associated with the signal.
