AR modeling of coherence in time delay and Doppler estimation
Miller, James H.
MetadataShow full item record
The estimation of time delay and Doppler difference of a signal arriving at two physically separated sensors is investigated in this thesis. Usually, modified cross power spectrum coupled with Doppler compensation is used to detect a common, passive signal received at two separated sensors. Another successful approach uses the cross coherence to achieve this goal. This thesis modifies these two techniques to model the Doppler difference via an autoregressive (AR) technique. Analytical results are derived and experimentally verified via a computer simulation. Performance at high and low signal to noise ratios (SNRs) is examined.
