Abstract:

Research conducted under this grant studied the performance of various receivers for Frequency Hopped M-ary Frequency Shift Keyed Signals in jamming and multiple access environments. This work was divided into two parts 1. Analysis of conventional List Metric Receivers 2. Analysis of Optimal Multiple Access Receivers Conventional list metric receivers were examined for both jamming and multiple access channels by Mark Alan Creighton as part of his Ph.D dissertation research. This work has been completed and Mark Creighton has obtained his Ph.D based on this work. The second part of this grant research has been conducted by Quang Vo as his Ph.D dissertation research. This part examined the performance of optimal and suboptimal multiple access receivers. The result of this work is a very practical multiple receiver design that performs almost as well as an ideal optimal receiver for M-ary FSK signals. Quan Vo has completed this research work and is now writing his dissertation.
