### 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 ...

### Signal rescaling

Please help me out with this one. I think I've been given an impossible task. I'm working on a system that transmits an active signal and looks for strong reflections. The transmitter is actually ...

### About understanding a Matched Filter

I have some basic doubt in understanding a matched filter (MF). Please note that I have already seen very informative post in this context Understanding the Matched Filter In what follows, I list ...

### 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. ...

### Designing Matched Filters on Arduino

I'm trying to develop a prototype at the moment that includes a sensor to detect how fast someone is typing on a keyboard. Essentially this sensor is a microphone that will be able to detect keyboard ...

### 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 ...

### Determining signal using Optimal receiver(Matched filter)

I'm given a signal that has been passed through a noisy channel using binary polar signaling with a pulse value of p(t) = 1. The receiver is coherent and the length of each pulse (in samples) is 10 ...
