Abstract:

Adaptive detection and copy of temporally coherent narrowband waveforms with multiple sensors is discussed. Unlike related problems treated in the radar literature, the sensor response to the coherent signal of interest is assumed unknown. Thus the techniques presented can be used with uncalibrated sensor arrays. The signal processing takes advantage of the sensor array as well as the signal coherence in order to form an adaptive spatial beam that suppresses cochannel interference. More general signal models involving partial coherence are also considered.
