How to calculate the phase shift AND time delay of non-periodic signals

Say I have two non-periodic signals, $f_1(t)$ and $f_2(t)$, with Fourier transforms $F_1(\omega)$ and $F_2(\omega)$. Basically, I need to line up $f_1(t)$ and $f_2(t)$ as close as possible, and I am ...

Discrete-time model of 2-user CDMA system, recovered information at receiver using polarity detection?

I have discrete-time model of 2-user CDMA system with: $b_1=-1, b_2=+1, \alpha_1, \alpha_2, s_1, s_2$ and $n$ white noise. What are the recovered infromation bits for user 1 and user 2 respectively ...

Radar SNR for a LFM Waveform

How do you estimate the detection SNR for a radar transmitting an LFM (chirp) waveform? I'm looking for an SNR equation that is a function of chirp bandwidth and compressed (or uncompressed) ...

How to eliminate matched filter background?

The question My goal is to detect an unknown frequency $f_1$ with a mixer and a matched filter. My simulation shows (below) that I correctly identify the 50 kHz external signal - but it also ...

Frequency Domain Variant of Pearson's Sample Correlation Coefficient?

Suppose that you need to find (i.e. acquire) $x_1$, a short data packet with a known bit sequence preamble (i.e. a PRBS BPSK), in $x_2$, quantized samples recorded from the output of an ADC. You don'...

Noise covariance matrix

I am attempting to implement a generalized least squares estimator that uses a noise covariance matrix from measured data. The basic model is as follows $$\hat{c}_{GLS} = \left(\bf{A}^T\bf{\Sigma}^{-...

Audio - TDOA and $\tt xcorr$, find the 'best' peak

I try to locate a mobile device using multilateration. The mobile device acts as the receiver and in the room I have three speakers. To calculate the position I need the time difference of arrival (...

Moving signal power normalization

I am using matched filters using GNU Radio to extract from noise a CW Morse signal. The filter actually performs pretty well in various SNR environments. My problem is that the threshold upon I decide ...

Should I normalize my input vector when using a matched filter?

I am using a matched filter to recognize an audio sample within a noisy input stream by cross correlating my sample with the input array and checking if the maximum crosses over my threshold. ...

Find a simple sine wave buried within noise, FFT or cross-correlation?

My recorded signal x = s + v, where s = A*sin(ωt) and v = noise. SNR < 1 or ~ 1. So the sine wave is buried under a lot of noise. I need to compare the relative amplitudes of s for each recording ...

ADC and Matched Filtering

A basic theorem in communications is the matched filter maximizes the SNR at sampling. I'm a little confused on how this relates to discrete time systems and sampling rate. Normally if you sample at ...

Matched filters

Working on my communication class right now, and I'm having a bit of a problem with the matched filters. As I see it the matched filters "eliminate" some of the noise. We project the received signal ...
